“Little Gem in Suwanee”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This park is a great place for small children or adults. The walking trails are fantastic and you can get plenty of exercise with the hills or just stroll and enjoy the scenery. The lake is always clean, has duck and geese that many of the children feed and I've even seen some retrievers chasing balls into the lake and returning. A nice playground for the kids and restrooms close by. Also has special events like camping and kayaking. Parking is a little tough on some evenings or holidays, but seems to change over sufficiently.

“Great Family Park”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a great little park to take your family or to exercise. The parking lot is small but it is located next to the playground, bathrooms and walking/running trails. There are big grass areas scattered nearby and a huge lake in the middle. The walking/running trails are marked with distance and depending on how far you wish to walk/run you can take different paths. All of the paths circle and have a view of the lake. It doesn't matter what time of day you go there are many people of all ages walking with their dogs, jogging, or riding their bikes. Many areas of the trail are covered by trees offering shade in the Summer. The playground has equipment for both small and older children. It is not huge, but big enough to wear out the little ones. The lake has ducks that will come up to you if you stand near the edge and they think you have food. There is no fishing or swimming in the lake. The bathrooms are clean and there are water fountains, even one about 6 inches off of the ground for dogs. In October they have a theater group that puts on "Terror in the Park". It is a mild outdoor haunted house that walks you around the trail and tells you scary stories while the narrator is dressed in a costume. My kids of 14 & 16 thought it was boring, but the little ones ages 6 - 10 loved it!
Overall, this is a great little park with a lot to offer.

“Suwanee Jewel”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Park surrounds a beautiful lake. Meandering trails on which one may hike, run, bike ride, or simply enjoy the view, lead past streams and small waterfalls. Benches are located all along the trails allowing you to rest up, or reflect.
On late Autumn evenings, the park is transformed, becoming populated by zombies and other creatures of the night who host, "Terror on the Trail;" a spooky/fun event sponsored by the Aurora Theater.
