    Ball Ground Reviews

    2 reviews
    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.
    Review Ball Ground
    Ball Ground has a quaint small town feel that is on the up and up. More country style stores are opening along the main street, becoming an inviting place for families to convene. However, the city decided several years ago, most likely due to cost reasons, to put in bright halogen street lights that can take away from the small town charm when walking down the street.
