The Town of Braselton currently has a park near downtown Braselton
with a playground, tennis courts and a pavilion. The Braselton
Visitors Bureau hosts special events including festivals and movies
at the park during the year. Other non-profits, including the
Braselton Antique Association, Friends of the Library and local
churches, host events at the part throughout the year as well. For a
list of events, check out our website at
One of our more exciting recreational sites is the Mulberry RiverWalk along the Mulberry River north of Interstate 85. The Mulberry River derives its name from the Cherokee Indians referring to Kuwa yi- translating to Mulberry Place. Jackson County history also lists Tishmaqgu as another name for this River, possibly of the Creek Indian origins.
The Town has identified the Mulberry River and its banks as a portion of Braselton that the Town believes should be protected and preserved. To further this purpose, the Town has acquired over 200 acres along the river.
The Town has constructed a walking path with perennial gardens, footbridges and picnic areas along the river for all the public to enjoy.
(River Walk) (River Walk Trails) Please note that this is a naturalized trail and not paved. No chemicals or non-natural materials are used in the trail so that the Mulberry River is protected as should be for a drinking water supply.
The spot where all four of Braselton’s counties (Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall and Jackson) come together is on the trail and denoted by a monument and a small rest stop along the river.
The public parking lot is located at 940 Liberty Church Road. Phase II of the RiverWalk is currently under construction and will be a more challenging trail.
If you are interested in the River Walk project, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always seeking volunteers for planting, design guidance and ongoing maintenance of this project which we believe will help to protect the Town’s most important natural resource. Clean ups are typically hosted 2 times a year, but we are always in need of individuals to spot issues year round and bring them to our attention.
