Newton County Recreation Commission's Turner Lake Complex is 158 acres of park with a 26-acre lake. This is a fabulous site for an outdoor wedding celebration for those getting married in Covington Georgia. The lawns and parks of Turner Lark are lush and create a peaceful backdrop to your wedding ceremony. As you and your guests look over the lake you will be pleased with the comfortable and inviting nature of Newton County's Turner Lake.
