November 19th, 2021
As the air gets cooler and night arrives sooner, opportunities to get fresh air and exercise outside become more precious. In a place like Suwanee, those opportunities are abundant all year - even in the fall - with beautiful parks and local trails. The right new home community, like our own Suwanee communities, gives you easy access to those local parks so you and your family can go catch the sunshine the moment the need strikes you! That means walkability to great parks and a quick drive to more extensive trails, as well as access to special Georgia destinations for making unforgettable memories in the beautiful outdoors. 

After any adventure, the most important thing is to get back home soon to relax and warm up - and in a community by The Providence Group that’s exactly what you can look forward to. Don’t miss your opportunity at an incredible Suwanee location, reach out to an agent to find out about new home opportunities. Then, read on to discover what staying active outdoors is like during fall in Suwanee.
Walkable Parks Near Home
All of our Suwanee neighborhoods feature access to local parks, offering plenty of recreation any time. A listing of all Suwanee’s local parks can be found on their website here.

Our townhome community Suwanee Towneship is within walking distance of Sims Lake Park. With its peaceful streamscape, lake with dock, playground, and many other public amenities, this beloved park provides relaxation and recreation that everyone can enjoy.

Townhome and single-family home neighborhood Ellington is directly adjacent to Peachtree Ridge Park in Suwanee. Homeowners and their families will enjoy sports fields, basketball courts, and local leagues to join here, as well as playground equipment and a walking trail.

And Harvest Park is another townhome and single-family home community designed with walkability as a key feature. This community is adjacent to White Street Park, which features a loop trail, firepit, seating, and plenty of lawn and scenery to enjoy. And, with the first public orchard in the southeast, plots for community gardening, an open-air barn that can be rented out for events, meandering walkways, and natural play equipment for the little ones, nearby Harvest Farm is a beautiful example of everything that community gardening can be. 

Additionally, these neighborhoods could soon be connected to Suwanee Town Center thanks to the robust system of trails under consideration and already under construction throughout town. Upon completion of the city’s plan for greater walkability, homeowners in Suwanee Towneship and Harvest Park will be able to walk or bike right up to Downtown Suwanee and the park there, with its walking loops, amphitheatre, 10 acres of open space, and more.
Short Drive to A Hidden Gem of a Trail 
For a more invigorating challenge among the area’s beautiful natural scenery, the Suwanee Creek Greenway trail attached to Suwanee Creek Park offers miles of paved and boardwalk trails to explore. This trail runs through some beautiful hardwood forests and wetlands, and whether you’re on a leisurely stroll or a more intense run, the scenery is sure to captivate - especially in the fall. Suwanee Creek Park is a short drive away from these neighborhoods, and if you’re looking for an even longer trek to get the blood flowing and condition those hiking muscles, this greenway connects to the Ivy Creek Greenway to create an 8-mile route.
Adventure of a Lifetime Nearby
And, for educational exploration, the pinnacle of North Georgia’s beauty, as well as access to the most legendary trail on the entire East Coast, there’s Amicalola Falls State Park. At about an hour’s drive from your new home in Suwanee, it can be quite a trek, but for the intrepid and anyone interested in getting out into the North Georgia nature, it’s well worth it. Between adventure activities, educational ranger talks, camping, the lodge, the falls themselves, and the approach for the Appalachian Trail, you can create exactly the weekend getaway you’re looking for in the outdoors here. 

In early fall, ziplining through the changing foliage is an unforgettable experience, and catching up with your group over a hot meal at the Maple Restaurant cements a perfect day in the outdoors. Or, stopping by the lodge or visitor’s center with the little ones for a ranger talk and meet-and-greet with one of the park’s animal ambassadors could instill a lifelong love of learning about nature. And for those looking to test themselves and set out on the adventure of a lifetime, the approach to the Appalachian Trail’s southern terminus begins in this park. Of course, you and your family could always take a guided hike on a short section of the approach to go see the falls and the overlook instead.
Coming Back to Warmth and Relaxation
In the cooler months, the best part of being out in the elements is knowing you can come home quickly and relax in total comfort. In a Suwanee home from The Providence Group, that’s exactly what you can look forward to - whether you’re getting your fresh air within walking distance or out in the beautiful North Georgia wilderness. And with a variety of home designs available, low-maintenance options, and features like 2-car garages available in our neighborhoods, it doesn’t matter how long you stay out there - the home you’ll come back to will be as beautiful and welcoming as the moment you stepped out. Find a life where you and your family can spend time outside whenever they want, no matter the season. Reach out to us about new home opportunities in these communities, and discover what’s waiting for you in Suwanee.
