Old Rucker Park & Farm

Old Rucker Park is an approximately 10-acre tract of land located in Alpharetta, Fulton County, Georgia. Old Rucker Park was once a commercial nursery and is now home to a variety of species of trees and plants. The rolling contour of the property is highlighted by a small stream that runs through the park. A  small section of the site has been developed into the Old Rucker Farm, however, approximately 7.5 acres continue to be planned and developed into a passive recreational area.


The Old Rucker Farm is the home base of the Alpharetta’s community agriculture program.  This community agriculture program was developed in 2018 with guidance and collaboration from various residents and community organizations. It includes an organically-grown fruit, vegetable, and cut-flower gardens, an outdoor classroom, and community garden plots located within Old Rucker Park. The community agriculture program will develop over time, aiming to best serve and meet the needs of the entire community. The City of Alpharetta will continue to develop programs and partnerships to enhance the program, based on residents’ feedback and assessment.
