One Gwinnett city will watch your kids while you go Christmas shopping

It's, holiday season, Gwinnett, and one local city is here to make things go a little more smoothly.

Between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Dec 10, 17 and 22, the city of Duluth invites folks to drop their kiddos off at Bunten Road Park, where they'll be supervised while their parents shop. 

"Due to the late holiday schedule of our local schools, the department recognized the need to have a holiday program for the kids as well as a safe place for the parents to bring their kids," city parks and recreation head Kathy Marelle said in a news release.

Participating kids will enjoy "holiday crafts, games and treats" while their parents finish (or start) their Christmas shopping, officials said. The cost is $25 for three hours or $75 for the entire day, and only kids between ages 4 and 12 are eligible. 

Space is limited and early registration is recommended. It can be completed at or in person at 3180 Bunten Road, Duluth. Those interested can also call 770-814-6981 for more information.

All potential shoppers — not just Duluth residents — are eligible to participate.
