In celebration of 25 years as a countywide park system, Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation (GCPR) is creating a documentary featuring park patrons who have played an important part of the park system, as well as those wanting to share interesting memories of the last 25 years. Patrons are asked to bring photos, videos, and oral histories to be used in crafting this documentary titled 25 Years of Memories.
Memorabilia can be brought to the designated community recreation centers during the months of April through May, and interviews can be scheduled by calling 770-614-2060.
In addition to the film documentary, GCPR is hosting a series of 25 Year Silver Anniversary Celebration events throughout the year. The Silver Anniversary events include: Play for a 1987 Quarter at selected GCPR gymnasiums; Blast from the Past an 80’s themed dance; Hot Rods and Hot Wings a 1987 model car show, as well as many other themed events.
