While visiting Byron, you can take a walk through the small historic downtown district. Grab your lunch to go and head across the tracks to Jailhouse Park, where you can peacefully enjoy your meal at one of the picnic tables or throw out a blanket in the shade and grab a good book. Jailhouse Park is on Jailhouse Alley, where you will find the original Byron Jail. It’s a one-room building, much like the jail of Andy Griffith’s time in Mayberry.
After lunch, head over to North Peach Park for a calm afternoon walk or a little playtime with the kiddos… there’s even a splash pad during the summer months! North Peach Park houses multiple ball fields for the Peach County Recreation Department, as well as approximately two miles of beautiful, paved walking trails. There’s also plenty of grass to kick up a quick game of soccer or flag football, throw a frisbee, or take a nap under the beautiful Georgia skies. Each year during the second weekend in June, North Peach Park becomes the home for the Georgia Peach Festival. This annual festival signifies that Peach Season is in full swing. Come out and enjoy the food, fun and live music, and don’t miss the grand finale—fireworks.
