Ball Ground, GA Overview

Located in the northernmost portion of Cherokee County, near the Pickens County line, Ball Ground, like Canton, Woodstock, and Holly Springs, enjoys a great location along I-575.  With just over 1,000 residents, this close-knit, friendly community is bound by an interesting heritage.  Legend has it that the Cherokee Indians met here during an earlier century to play a game resembling lacrosse.  Today, an entirely different community has gathered to enjoy the same great location.  Contemporary Ball Ground is regionally known as a quiet, peaceful community.  Local residents are most proud of their town’s charming downtown district.  This turn-of-the-century area has changed little since the 1920s and is still brimming with several elegant historic homes.  Ball Ground is also home to Gibbs Botanical Gardens, the Cherokee branch of the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
