Mountain Park Community

This is your home on our earth—a little corner of the world centered and stretching down Five Forks Trickum Road between Rockbridge and Killian Hill. More broadly, we also extend into Smoke Rise to east of Killian Hill, between 29 and 78. It’s a big swath with tens of thousands of us.


When Stone Mountain Park opened to the public in 1965, it was an exciting time. Riffing off the name, the Mountain Park community was born. Farmland became subdivisions as many young families moved into new homes. They even wanted to incorporate—until the wind was taken out of their sails by the already incorporated Mountain Park in Georgia! Oh well, it’s the community name we’ve still kept for decades. So just think of us as the other Mountain Park. We know who we are. Some still refer to the FFT/Rockbridge intersection as Trickum, a name that’s likely been here for many years.

We are always needing volunteers for our many projects!  Check out the available positions below.


Land Use & Code enforcement Committee Lead

Report potential violations/deviations to the core team for review, discussion and potential action/escalation. Review could include contacting the county Planning and Development department (P&D) for additional information after reviewing all available public information. Escalation could include public engagement through surveys, social medial posts, meetings with developers and county officials to capture all available information and perspectives.

Other activity could be supporting local residents with education on code enforcement and helping to report some of the more egregious code violators.
