Sumter County

Public recreation is funded jointly by the City of Americus and Sumter County. A large city-county recreational complex, including a variety of playing fields, is located just south of Americus on US Highway 19/State Route 3 (Martin Luther King Blvd). A horse riding arena is located on Southerfield Road in northeast Americus. A baseball field is located on the outskirts of De Soto.

Andersonville owns and maintains three recreation sites. Andersonville City Park, located on East Church Street, consists of a full-length, lighted basketball court. This recreation site also contains children’s playground equipment and a picnic table. A lighted tennis court is located at the intersection of Ellaville and Oglethorpe streets. A large, unfenced and unmarked adjoining grass field is available for softball, football, and other activities. The third recreation site consists of a half-court basketball court, playground equipment, and picnic tables on West Johnson Street.
