Pine Valley

Pine Valley is an outdoor recreation complex owned by UNG bordered by the Etowah River. The area also offers a recreation field, pavilion, and sand volleyball court.

The Dean Hyams Leadership Center & Ropes Course as well as the Leadership Reaction Course are also located at Pine Valley.  These venues offer an environment for valuable team building and can give groups an opportunity to work on skills such as communication, leadership, problem-solving, conflict resolution, and fun!

The pavilion at Pine Valley is a great location for picnics and gatherings.  There are 10 picnic tables as well as 4 serving tables.  During cooler weather, the pavilion can be enclosed by lowering the doors surrounding it.  A heating system is available for use as well as a large stone fireplace.

UNG Groups can use the pavilion for free. Please contact the Student Center at 706-864-1643 to make arrangements.

Outside Groups can rent the pavilion - groups under 100 people, the cost is $75, and groups over 100, is $100. Please contact the Student Center at 706-864-1643 to make reservations.

Please Note: Use of the pavilion does not necessarily mean exclusive use of the entire Pine Valley Recreation Area due to the fact that student organizations may be using the area for training or recreational purposes.

Ropes Course

The course consists of both low and high ropes elements. Generally, low ropes are used for team building as well as a great way for a group to come together and become better acquainted. Low ropes elements often target development of skills within a group such as leadership, communication, conflict resolution, problem solving, and planning.  Involvement in high ropes activities also bonds groups together through having a shared adventure experience. 

UNG Groups should contact the Department of Recreational Sports for prices and reservations at 706-864-1622.

Outside Groups should contact the office of Continuing Education at 706-864-1918 for pricing and reservations.
