Spring in Gwinnett County
About North Georgia

Tribble Mill Park
We asked photographer Hans Enderle to capture Spring in Gwinnett County, Georgia in 2009. His odyssey took him to four widespread parks throughout the county. With each photo we include a Flicker link to view all photos from the related photostream.

Tribble Mill Park is built on the site of Tribble Mill, built very early in the history of Gwinnett County. The mill remained active through the early 1950's. Between 1987 and 1990 Gwinnett County purchased the land when voters approved a bond issue for parks. In August of 1990 the county began work on Tribble Mill. completed a multi-use trail, Tribble Mill Park Trail, playground and shelter. In this photo, German-born photographer Hans Enderle captures the reflective beauty of an early spring bloom.

Suwanee Greenway
One of the prettiest blooms in Georgia during spring is the dogwood, the tree that is also a flower. Suwanee Creek Greenway is a great place to see dogwoods in bloom in late March and early April, along with many other spring flowers. The meandering tributary of the Chattahoochee River once carried the Bona Allen Tannery pollution to the Hooch, but thanks to reclamation efforts of many, the river is now one of the cleanest in the state. The 8-mile Suwanee Greenway (4 miles out, 4 miles back) traverses the creek between George Pierce Park and Suwanee Creek Park, giving access to nearly 400 acres of land.

McDaniel Farm Park
Archie McDaniel and his sister ran McDaniel Farm after taking it over from their father in the 1950's. After Archie died in 1999 his family sold the land to the county to create McDaniel Farm Park, near Gwinnett Place Mall. The park is built on their land and the farm remains, interpreted as a farm from the 1930's, complete with a farmhouse, sharecropper (tenant farmer) cabin, blacksmith shop, and barn. The park has a pavilion, picnic area and 3 miles of paved trails. In the park are number of off-path hikes on an aggregate surface totaling nearly 4 miles.

Our final stop in our springtime journey is Little Mulberry Park in northern Gwinnett County.
Little Mulberry Park
With more than 12 miles of hiking trails, an equestrian trail and a massive area designated as a nature preserve, Little Mulberry is the largest of all Gwinnett County parks, with 890 acres of land. In the park is a waterfall and Native American areas. Nearby, the county is exploring the possibility of protecting historically important land including Native American areas.
