We had lunch with some friends there today and it is certainly a good looking community. It's easy to get there and they have just about every kind of retail and amenity imaginable.

I agree, arjay. It is a very nice community.

Also lots of jobs in that area. Results in a very congested PIB and Peachtree Pkwy in the afternoon. Only thing lacking is the quality of public schools in that area. Norcross isn't the worst by any means (looking at you Meadowcreek) but it's not in the top tier either.

I agree, the issue there is the public schools. Not terrible, but not that good either.

Peachtree Corners does not feed into the Meadowcreek Cluster.

I know. I was saying Norcross High is not the best but not the worst, which is Meadowcreek.

On the way home we swung by Jones bridge Park and it would dwarf the action on the Beltline. So much for the theory that folks in the suburbs don't get out and about!

Really, arjay?

It has been posted on here numerous times that Atlanta and other counties envy the county park services that are in Gwinnett County.

Give me a break.

In Arjay's defense, the beltline is filled past what-I-consider-expected capacity pretty regularly. It is an exercise in dodging/avoiding other people, bicycles, longboards, etc.

I would not take the belt line over Gwinnett's parks system, but Fulton Co has Piedmont Park, which is currently the metro area's #1 park.
