|Wildlife abounds in Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation! We employ ecologically sound management strategies that foster diverse, long-term sustainable ecosystems to protect nearly 10,000 acres of park lands including its forest, lakes, ponds, streams, and meadows|
We manage our parks toward a healthy balance, by providing habitats for a variety of plants, birds, and animals which leads to cleaner parks, increased biodiversity of the urban forest and adjacent meadows, and better water quality in park waterways.
|According to the Atlanta Regional Commission Inventory of Parks and Greenspace, Gwinnett County boasts 6.01 percent of the total land acreage in the county protected for greenspace (20 acres of greenspace per 1,000 residents). |
The National Park Service and the Forest Service has designated 50 miles of trails at Harbins Park, Little Mulberry Park, McDaniel Farm Park, and Settles Bridge Park as National Recreation Trails! This designation recognizes existing trails and trail systems that link communities to recreation opportunities on public lands in local parks across the nation.
