Victoria Bryant State Park is a 502-acre (2.03 km2) Georgia state park located near Franklin Springs.[1] Nestled in the rolling hills of Georgia's Piedmont plateau, this park offers facilities ranging from picnic sites and a swimming pool to an 18-hole golf course. The North Fork of the Broad River flows through the park, adding several water hazards to the course. The park also offers a short nature trail plus a long perimeter trail that takes hikers through hardwood forests. In addition, the park is home to many species of birds, plants, and reptiles.
