Great venue for wedding reception

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.

We regularly walk our dogs in the park. It is very well maintained. The museum provides great heritage and history of the area.

I am walking this park just about every day. Overall most of the trails are kept up very well, but some of the trails are not getting any attention at all, to bad.

Even though you have to pay to get in it is worth the cost. You can hike and see different exhibits. Nice place to go do something outdoors and is not too far. Did not have time to do the treetop exhibit but it looks good.

This is a great place to go for hiking and walking the dogs. Lots of great trails to explore with lots of character. The Heritage Center has a lot to offer as well.
