Gwinnett County Parks & Recreation (GCPR) will join other local and national municipalities to celebrate National Visit a Park Day on Friday, Oct. 2. Visit a Park Day is organized by the Young Professionals Network, along with the National Recreation and Park Association as a way to encourage people everywhere to take a few minutes to visit a local, state, regional or national park to experience the benefits and to inspire many return visits.
Visit a Park Day provides an opportunity to get out into local parks and discover new places or rediscover old favorites to rejuvenate mind, body and spirit. GCPR is asking citizens to visit any of the parks, greenways, and facilities on this day and submit their pictures to the Gwinnett Parks Foundation’s Facebook page or Tweet using the hashtag #VisitAParkDay. Park staff will be available at various locations throughout the day to share the benefits parks provide in conservation, improving health and wellness and connecting and serving all people in the community.
By the way feel free to post pictures to our Facebook page as well at www.facebook.com/gwinnettparklife. We’re a fan of the Gwinnett Parks too.
