Park hours modified, certain areas closed
Ball fields, courts, playgrounds, skate parks and pavilions closed, trails remain open
Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation park hours are sunrise to sunset and certain areas within parks are closed in the interest of public health. While parks remain open to allow residents to enjoy the outdoors during this unprecedented time, it has become evident that restricting access to certain areas of parks is necessary to enforce social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Basketball courts, tennis courts, volleyball courts, dog parks, ball fields, playgrounds, pavilions, sand volleyball courts and skate areas are among the amenity areas within County parks that are closed.
Gwinnett County officials ask residents to comply with the closures by obeying posted signage and avoiding locked or cordoned-off areas. In addition, anyone who continues to visit the trails or other open areas in County parks should practice social distancing.
All County parks indoor facilities, aquatic centers and pools remain closed, and programs hosted at these facilities have been canceled until further notice.
Parks and Recreation staff will be communicating with residents who have upcoming reservations at pavilions or other facilities. Anyone who has booked a rental at a county facility can contact the facility to learn their options for rescheduling or receiving a refund.
