2 Gwinnett parks are getting new playgrounds

Two Gwinnett County parks are getting new playgrounds. 

The county commission approved Tuesday a $750,000 contract that will cover removing and replacing “playground equipment and surfaces,” as well as improving handicap accessibility, at George Pierce Park in Suwanee and Mountain Park Park in Lilburn.

Landscape Structures Inc. was awarded the contract, which will be paid for by local sales tax dollars. 

In a news release, officials said the George Pierce Park upgrades will include a “net climbing tower with flexible platforms,” a “small climbing dome” and an area for toddlers. The Mountain Park Park upgrade will include a “variety of slides, climbers, activity panels and [a] tower,” as well as a wheelchair-accessible “sensory tunnel.”

No potential timeline for the completion of the new playgrounds was released.
