Center regularly has unique events. So watch calendar for what fits your family's interest. We attended the Button Gwinnett Festival and enjoyed learning about Revolutionary era clothing, crafts and life. You can enjoy the rest of the center's permanent exhibits while you're there. $8 admission.

This place is nestled into the buford/swuanee area really nicely. It's surprisingly large, and has a lot of good trails that are fun to take the dogs with for a nice hike after work or on a weekend morning. Overall a really nice park that I would recommend everyone in the area visit.

Love to take a walk on the trails...there are several depending on your capability. Inside is a gift shop and a great place for children. Check their website and calendar for their upcoming activities.

I like local hiking trails, which offer nice scenery and easy walking, tis offers both. I like the lack of tourists the most.

I recently took my two grandsons (6 and 18 mos.) to the center primarily for the Abracadabra Magic exhibit. However, there was also a water exhibit that also fun and educational. The water exhibit has some great stations that demonstrated, water filtering (complete with the smells of pretreated water), water pressure - push a button to raise a bucket of... More

I live a few miles from this and it took me years to know it was there. Really great paths and trails.

Either as a family or with a class, this makes for a great day of being indoors and out. The trails are well marked, the displays are good, and the ropes course looks interesting. They have ziplining, too! My son loves it here!

If you love the outdoors and looking for a great park to do team building activities or just to take a leisurely stroll through the woods while you listen to nature and the light crashing sounds of water, this is the place to go. It's perfect for destination weddings, birthday parties and other celebratory events.
