We will be heading there in the Spring to check things out again.
Question......
Which parks are the good/popular (lots of kids) parks in the Suwanee, Buford, Dacula areas? We'll be there on a weekend and would love to take our kids to the park to check things out.

Any parks that you would say, "Oh! Def chk out _____!" ?

Thanks.

Here is one link related to parks:
City of Suwanee, Georgia | City Services - Parks

I would also recommend a walk along the Suwanee Creek Greenway, with access points from Suwanee Creek Park, Martins Farm park, or from George Pierce park (a Gwinnett County Park even though it is in the city limits of Suwanee). I also enjoy going down to Buford Dam and taking a look at the Lake.

In Suwanee during the summer, the Town Center has a water fountain spray thingy (that comes out the ground) that's very popular. You'll also find kids riding their bikes along the Greenway and sometimes throwing frisbees around the Town Center.

If you come out here the weekend before Earth Day (which is 4/20) then please come down to the Candler Park neighborhood, which is in the city. We have this really nice park (the neighborhood is named after it - Candler Park) and every year around Earth Day the park is the location of the Sweetwater 420 Earth Day Festival.

Now, understand that Sweetwater is a brewery. And 420 is their signature ale. So, this is a beer festival that's combined with Earth Day. It DOES bring a lot of young college aged beer lovers to the neighborhood.

But, the neighborhood is a family neighborhood and the Festival does cater to it. So, there's lots of live music and lots of things for kids to do, too. It's fun for everyone.

Sweetwater 420 Festival :: Atlanta, GA :: April 17-18 2010

If you are in town for that date and want to come my advice is to park at the Indian Creek MARTA station and get off at the Candler Park station. The Candler Park station is two blocks south and one block west of the park where the festival is.

Yes, it has a 9 hole golf course. It's a little more than a block away from the orginal Flying Biscuit.

I couldn't remember the name, but I had fun playing on that course a few times when I worked in town. I would also suggest that the OP check out Piedmont park in the Spring - really one of my favorite spots in ATL.
