I live in Gwinnett County, in the suburbs of Atlanta. The area (Gwinnett Place) is a very congested, busy area with a mall and surrounding stores near I 85. Imagine my surprise when I decided to check out some of the parks in the area and found this lovely peaceful setting right in the middle of all the chaos! This farm had been located here for years and years while the area around it grew up. The county bought the property in the late 1990's after the death of the owner. I read about the park in the paper and had seen the signs, as I live only four miles away.
On the property, is the 1930's era farmhouse (though the land had been in the family a lot further back than the 30's) and out buildings such as the barn and one room school house. School groups can come and see how things used to be done and in May, a Pioneer Day is held where demonstrations are done.
While I enjoy the farm, I really enjoy the three miles of paved walking paths! It truly feels like you are walking in the mountains and not in the center of commerce for a busy area off Pleasant Hill.
There is a lot to share about this lovely spot on earth!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
