Places to Enjoy the Weather
There are a number of beautiful parks located right here in Norcross where you can enjoy the weather with your family. Jones Bridges Park, for instance, has a playground, a volleyball court, and areas where you can fish on the river. Thrasher Park, though it is small, is known for its shady trees--perfect for those hot summer days. If you want to take the puppy along, consider going to the Pinckneyville Dog Park. Just be sure to wear sunscreen when you’re enjoying the weather!
