Downtown Statesboro is a blend of historic southern charm and a modern college town vibe. A number of gracious buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places, restored and redefining contemporary living. When in Downtown you’re within walking distance of great restaurants and shops, the galleries and stage of the Averitt Center for the Arts, a wide range of businesses and services, the Statesboro Public Library and Georgia Southern University’s City Campus E-Zone. The McTell Trail – a beautiful one mile greenway – connects Downtown to the Georgia Southern University campus.
It’s a town where you see professionals strolling to work, young families off to busy days, and long-time residents enjoying the energy of newcomers. Just name your style. Interested in the eclectic chic of a studio loft in a historic building? They’re here – with up to 1700 square feet of living space. Dreaming of a single-family home with a gracious southern accent? Come take a look.
Statesboro Community Park, a Signature Gathering Place
Imagine a two-acre green space community park in the heart of downtown. Pavilions for concerts, art festivals and other events. A water feature splashing at its center – where children play and adults relax. A place for group outings and family fun. A beautiful destination day and night, year round.
That’s the vision for a new Community Park, an innovative collaboration of the DSDA, the City of Statesboro, Bulloch County, business and private entities. While still in the early development stage, it offers the promise of a landmark venue for Statesboro residents and a draw to a multi-county audience.
