City of Duluth Parks
Bunten Road Park
Bunten Road Park is a 45 acre community park located in the southeast quadrant of the city. The park is located on Bunten Road between Old Peachtree Road and Duluth Highway, about a block away from M.H. Mason Elementary School. This park offers a mixture of passive and active recreation opportunities including baseball, soccer, tennis, playgrounds, walking trails, and a recreation center. The park’s abundance of recreation opportunities and well maintained facilities attract a lot of visitors to the park. The park’s circulation includes a single entrance off of Bunten Road which leads to a looping park road. The road provides access to the various parking lots which are placed in close proximity to the various facilities. Pedestrian circulation includes a variety of trails that wind through the park. The central trail is a 10’ wide asphalt trail which passes next to the active fields as well as through the wooded section of the park. Smaller, unpaved paths meander through portions of the wooded area. The trails offer a varied experience for park visitors. The active sports facilities take up the majority of the space in the park. The baseball fields are located in pairs, with a concession building for each pair of fields. One soccer field is located in the northwestern corner of the site, and another soccer field is centrally located, adjacent to the community center. A tennis facility, with 4 courts, sits in the northern end of the park, adjacent to a maintenance facility. The 36,000 square foot community center has an indoor gym, office space, meeting rooms, and aerobics rooms. Duluth’s recreation department headquarters are located at the community center. The community center is heavily used; hosting events for all ages including young children and senior citizens.

Church Street Park
Church Street Park is a 1.72 acre park located in the Southeastern quadrant of Duluth, a few blocks south of Buford Highway on Church Street. Church Street Park is on a dead end road with little vehicular traffic. The park is in close proximity to two churches within a low income residential neighborhood. The park was developed in the mid 1990’s. Church Street Park’s topography is challenging due to steep slopes and few flat areas. The park has very few trees, and is somewhat of a barren environment. A large transmission line power easement crosses through the middle of the site, limiting the amount of trees that can be planted. The park consists of a pavilion, playground, and a 10 space parking lot at the northwestern end of the park. The southeastern end of the park includes a basketball court, swing-set, and several perpendicular, on-street parking spaces.

Rogers Bridge Park
Roger’s Bridge Park is a 16.98 acre park located in the northeastern quadrant of Duluth, a few blocks north of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard on Rogers Bridge Road (a Gwinnett County Road). Surrounding properties include an adjacent private event facility, a sand dredging facility, and single family residential neighborhoods. The private event facility includes large open spaces, a volleyball court, a small multi-use building, and a boat ramp; a city easement provides public access to the boat ramp. The Chattahoochee River flows along the northern boundary of the park. Approximately two-thirds of the park is an open grassy field with small wooded areas along the stream buffer and at the southern end of the park. A gravel parking lot, picnic pavilion, playground, and volleyball court are the only recreational amenities in the park. The remains of a historic steel bridge (Rogers Bridge) span the Chattahoochee River. Although the bridge is in disrepair, the structure is sound and there are conceptual plans to restore the bridge for bike/pedestrian purposes. The park sits at a strategic location, adjacent to the river and at the intersection of several planned, but not constructed, multi-use trails. The trails include the Western Gwinnett Bikeway along Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, The Rogers Bridge Trail along Rogers Bridge Road and the Chattahoochee River Greenway which follows the river along the city’s northern boundary.

Scott Hudgens Park is owned Georgia DNR, but is leased to the City of Duluth, and is managed and maintained by the Atlanta Fire United Soccer Association. The park land was donated to the city with the stipulation that it be used for soccer. The park is heavily used on weekends, with an estimated 3000 people visiting each day. Besides soccer, the park is used for the city fireworks display on the Fourth of July, and for high school cross country meets. The park is a long narrow parcel, bounded on the west by the Chattahoochee River. The majority of the site sits within the Chattahoochee River floodplain. A small stream cuts across the park, separating the game fields from the practice fields. The park consists of 4 graded and irrigated soccer fields, and approximately 13.5 acres of informal fields. A narrow road runs along the edge of the fields providing two way vehicular/pedestrian circulation across the eastern edge of the park.
