GE Trails at Garrard Park

1935 Redmond Circle, Rome, GA 30165

Several trail loops designed for mountain bikes criss-cross approximately half of the 123-acre tract for a total of 11 miles.

A 1.2-mile walking trail has also been developed along the perimeter of the property and was named for Bob and Peggy Moore, local cycling enthusiast.

The 123 acres are named for the doctor who originally owned the land and sold it to General Electric in July 1952 for $118,350. His youngest son, Bobby Garrard, snipped the ribbon to officially open the recreational complex. Many of the Garrard and Stroop descendants attended the dedication.

Dr. Garrard took one of the fields on the property and turned it into an airstrip, Rome’s first airport. Robert E. Stroop, who was certified for flight in 1921 by Orville Wright, delivered the plane to Rome and fell in love with one of Garrard’s daughters and they later married.
