The Splash Park is 60-foot in diameter and boasts 21 zones, 42 arch spray nozzles and 28 vertical spray nozzles. The water fountains are accompanied by 93 color-changing LED lights. The center fountain is made up of a cluster or 6 large nozzles and 20 small spray heads. The cascading nozzles produce a large pyramidal column of white, aerated water. The Splash Park also includes specialized controls that allow for programmed choreographed water and light sequencing, making it a Splash Park by day and a colorful choreographed fountain by night. Parents and friends can enjoy watching the fountain from the adjacent Family Plaza while sitting at one of eight picnic tables nestled under four large shade sails.
The Splash Park cannot be rented or reserved and is on a first-come-first-served basis.
Sugar Hill Greenway
After decades of remarkable growth, Sugar Hill has become one of the premier places to live in Gwinnett County. One key to Sugar Hill’s success is the high value the City places on quality of life. This commitment to quality of life is exemplified in the City’s new initiative to develop the Sugar Greenway, an 11.5-mile greenway around the city with approximately 16.5 miles of trail. A greenway is a linear open space that connects multiple destinations along a corridor that is predominantly natural in character. Within the proposed Sugar Greenway will be a trail, defined here as a paved path intended for shared use by pedestrians, bicyclists, wheelchair users, joggers, and other non-motorized users. A greenway project of this size and scale will be transformative for Sugar Hill. Specifically, the City and its residents can expect to experience economic, health, environmental, transportation, and community benefits from the greenway’s development.

Gold Mine Park
Although Dahlonega's major claim to fame is its gold mines, many of the initial settlers of Sugar Hill were in fact gold miners. Many of these miners mined from Sugar Hill all the way to the Chattahoochee River. As a celebration of this heritage, the City of Sugar Hill is building a 9.2-acre park named "Gold Mine Park," which will sit along Level Creek Road and will serve as a trail head to the Sugar Hill Greenway. The 16-mile trail, which will circle around the city, will take hikers by one of the city's old gold mines. Although the gold has been long depleted, hikers can enjoy a beautiful part of Sugar Hill's unique history. The Gold Mine Park will be apart of the city's effort of building the first segment of the trail. For more information, please visit http://sugarhillgreenway.com/ or our city projects page.
