Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center


2020 Clean Water Dr.
Buford GA 30519


Scope out a world of wonders at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center, located on 233 wooded acres near the Mall of Georgia. Explore educational exhibits inside, including the Water Ways diorama and the kid-friendly Discover H20, and enjoy recreational offerings outdoors, from the Treetop Quest ropes course to five miles of walking trails. Picnic at the wooded pavilion and venture back in time at the historic Chesser-Williams House, also on the campus.

Gwinnett’s first LEED-certified building is a model of eco-smart innovation, from the pervious pavement to the green roof – the largest sloped vegetative roof in the Southeast. Among the tranquil water features are a waterfall wall and a natural stream teeming with tadpoles and turtles. Designed in partnership with the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, the Gwinnett County Board of Education, and the University of Georgia, this cultural center is also available as a rental venue.
