Gwinnett officials recently unveiled improvements to a neighborhood park across the street from Club Drive Park near Lawrenceville.
The 2.3-acre park sits adjacent to the 25.5-acre main park and includes a new parking lot accessible from Rolling Ridge Road with 35 parking spaces and a half-acre lawn surrounded by a paved walking path.
Other amenities include a picnic shelter and restroom facility, swing sets, bike racks, adult swings, and an overlook deck with seating. A new boardwalk connects to an existing pedestrian crossing on Club Drive. The area also serves as a trailhead for a future greenway south along Sweetwater Creek. These improvements were made possible using 2014 SPLOST funds.
Club Drive Park, Gwinnett’s 40th park, first opened in 2008. The park features a 4.75-acre lake, boardwalk and fishing pier structure, a gazebo, pavilion, paved multi-purpose trail, two half-court basketball courts, and a 13,000-square-foot playground.
