Gwinnett celebrates Jones Bridge Park renovations in Peachtree Corners

Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation celebrated the completion of renovations to Jones Bridge Park with a ribbon cutting March 7 at 4901 East Jones Bridge Road in Peachtree Corners. The renovations include a new 840-square-foot restroom building and 860-square-foot pavilion near the playground.

District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard said Jones Bridge Park is the heartbeat of the Peachtree Corners community, offering fishing, hiking, soccer fields, a community room and now a new pavilion.

“Jones Bridge Park does what public spaces are supposed to do,” Howard said. “It brings people of all ages together, accommodates a multitude of interests and events and provides opportunities for exercise, relaxation and entertainment. But most of all, it brings together people of all ages and cultures to build a stronger community.”

New sidewalk and stairs were also added to connect to the parking lot, playground and other park amenities. Funding for these renovations come from the 2014 SPLOST program.
