Duncan Creek Park Synthetic Turf Field Underway

Duncan Creek Park is an existing active recreation park in the Hamilton Mill area of Gwinnet County, Georgia. Due to the area’s huge youth sports population, the County decided to convert their worn-out and over-used natural turf field to the first synthetic turf field in their extensive park system. The excavation is mostly complete and the formwork has begun for the concrete containment curb. Stay tuned for further updates as this exciting project moves closer to completion in July.
