Yellow River Park, Gwinnett County, GA
The Yellow River Park site is a 565-plus-acre tract located in south Gwinnett County. The site is primarily wooded with a small amount of open space. The property contains several miles of trails currently utilized by mountain bikers, equestrian users and pedestrian walkers. The principal goal of this project was to preserve the natural resources associated with the park; provide well-built trails for mountain bikers, equestrian riders, and pedestrians; provide amenity areas to service surrounding neighborhoods and a variety of user groups; and provide a safe, environmentally sustainable and usable environment for passive park activities. WK Dickson took an innovative approach in using its GPS Smart Bike Technology to design the project while in the field. By doing so, we sped up the schedule by locating unique design attributes while onsite.
