Ball Ground if you are looking for a small town, and rural place to live then Ball Ground is a perfect place. Personally, that is not what I look for in a place to live, and would rather have near by stores besides a Dollar General, and a decent library among other things. The roads are not well kept, and their are many old unused houses and buildings. Downtown is decent with a couple good family owned restaurants though, but it is very small and could use some expansion!

Ball Ground is a wonderful small town to live in. The small town is surrounded by a large city and bustling suburbs, but still maintains the perfect balance between a busy social life and a relaxing environment. I definitely recommend anyone in the north Georgia area to visit Ball Ground, even if it's just for a day.
Ball Ground is such a sweet, small town. It has a square with everything from a sweet, old-time candy shop to a delicious restaurant! On 4th of July, you can go watch the fireworks and enjoy walking around the community. It's great.
