Parks & Recreation



Rogers Bridge Park improvements have begun. The Bridge contractors are mobilizing to begin the Rogers Bridge Project. Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources is installing a 54” sewer line to improve service for existing and future development. Rogers Bridge Park is CLOSED to the public until park improvements are completed. For public safety and for the safety of the contractors, DO NOT sneak a peek by entering the closed park areas.


The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation will provide the optimum recreational facilities with quality programs to ensure the standard of excellence for all the citizens of Duluth.


The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department aspires to provide long-term, quality, safe, diverse and enduring programs targeted for various segments of the local community at reasonable costs. Financially, our intent is to generate maximum returns-on-investment where possible, and to meet the varying and increasing demands of a growing community; but not at the expense of excluding services demanded by the majority of our public. We will attempt to provide sufficient, well-maintained facilities and green space with associated recreation activities to achieve minimum standards as defined by the Georgia Parks and Recreation Association.
