New active adult center to open July 28

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- The city of Johns Creek is preparing to unveil Park Place, its renovated center for active adults.

The grand opening event at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 28 will cap a two-year effort to transform the former Newtown School building into an inviting space for Johns Creek residents who are at least 62 years old and looking to fill their days with recreational and educational activities.

"We are looking forward to showing off this great facility to our residents," said John Kachmar, Johns Creek city manager. "We've worked hard to transform this historic building into a welcoming place that our folks can use for many years to come."

Park Place features 4,800 square feet of classrooms, a meeting hall, studios, a kitchen and an office. Planned programming includes courses in yoga, social media, cooking and health education.

The Newtown Park Community Foundation provided the center with furniture and helped with landscaping.

Park Place is located at 3125 Old Alabama Road. It will be open Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The four-classroom Newtown School was first built in 1929 in the former Milton County and operated until 1980. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.
