By AccessWDUN Staff

The newly expanded Ivy Creek Greenway in Suwanee was officially unveiled during a ribbon cutting Ceremony Monday. 

Spanning from Westbrook Road into George Pierce Park, the new trailhead extension connects to existing trails, including the Suwanee Creek Greenway. The expansion also features  amenities such as  25 parking spaces, a bike repair station, benches for resting and bioretention features for sustainability and ecological balance along the trail.

“Projects like this expansion exemplify Gwinnett County’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the quality of life for all, fostering connections between neighborhoods and creating even more opportunities for recreation, relaxation and rejuvenation,”Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson, said. “Our community is fortunate to have a well-maintained and safe place to engage in physical activity.”

In addition to the amenities added to the trail, ¾ of a mile of the greenway features a 1,000-foot paved multi-use trail, a 1,500-foot concrete boardwalk overlooking the wetlands and a pedestrian bridge that spans Suwanee Creek.

The project is part of the 2018 Gwinnett Countywide Trails Master Plan, prioritizing the recreational and transit needs of residents.

Gwinnett County used $3.7 million in SPLOST funds for the project.
