JOHNS CREEK, GA. -- Park Place at Newtown School, Johns Creek’s active adult center, will celebrate its first anniversary with a picnic from 5-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18.

Park Place, which serves Johns Creek residents age 62 and older, opened in July 2011 after a 2-year effort to transform the historic 1920s Newtown School building into an inviting, light-filled space for active adult programs and activities.

The active adult center’s new programs include a recently formed service and social club for Johns Creek veterans, a bocce ball court, knitting classes, and day trips to popular destinations such as Gibbs Gardens, the Dahlonega wineries, and an Atlanta Braves baseball game.

Park Place also has programs like Pilates, Zumba, walking, plus cooking demonstrations, driver safety courses, and computer classes.

The picnic will feature free food, live music and giveaways. Park Place is at 3125 Old Alabama Road, Johns Creek.

Please RSVP by calling 770-667-5030 or emailing parkplace@johnscreekga.gov.
