From the moment you walk into the George Pierce Park Community Center, you instantly feel welcome and comfortable. And that feeling is one many seniors in and around Suwanee feel when they enjoy the various programs offered.
The park's community center is a beautiful facility, complete with lecture rooms, computer labs, Bridge tables, and cozy reading areas. During a visit, two Bridge games, a computer class, and even an AARP tax-assistance class were going on simultaneously.
In addition to the events and classes, senior trips and clubs are available. Senior citizens in Suwanee and across Gwinnett County have a safe place in county-operated parks to go to meet friends, experience life, and enjoy their community.
The Gwinnett County senior programs include therapeutic recreation, aquatics, special events, guest speakers, and historic & cultural tours. New activities are constantly being added, so for more information, visitt www.gwinnettparks.com.
Also, a booklet containing information is available at the community center.
