Twitty Park was dedicated as a public park in 1924 when Mr. T. L. Cain of St. Simons Island gifted the land and iconic live oak trees in trust to Glynn County. The Glynn Environmental Coalition is working to ensure that Glynn County maintains Twitty Park for the benefit of the citizens and to enforce the public park requirements of T. L. Cain’s original gift.
