This is a great venue to learn about some of the environments native to Gwinnett and the surrounding counties. Really neat place to visit with kids to do some exploring.

We made this into a family outing. I dragged my husband, toddler, in laws, and two visiting friends when they said that they wanted to do something outside. The grounds are beautiful so if you like taking pictures you are in for no shortage of quality subjects no matter the season. They have well maintained hiking paths, zip lines, and... More

Walk or cycle along a stream and enjoy birds, flowers and fresh air. Peaceful and pretty. There are some hills on one side of it, but it's still a pretty easy bike ride.

We had my daughters wedding reception here December 19th. It was decorated very nicely for Christmas. Was very easy for our caterer and DJ to work in.

We made this a family affair. Keep in mind it does take body strength to complete the course. However, if you get stuck, like some of our party did, they do have staff to come out to save you. It is a great hidden gem to discover!

Both the heritage center and the zipline tree course and great for the kids. We have been several times, and both early teenagers are happy to go again and again.

I have visited several times and always enjoy the exhibits. We like to walk the greenway and go to the Tree Top Adventure Course.

Beautifully designed building over a stream. Educational about Gwinnett's history and environment. Plenty to read for adults. Kids will love the water room. Several activities to do outside as well including easy trails and treetop quest. Nice day out for the family. But take food. Only packaged snacks and food sold there.

Thank Vagabond2be
