Nothing is more important than family. Through the good and the bad, you can always turn to your family for comfort, guidance, or a good laugh! The team at Bardi is proud to serve the residents of Norcross and Atlanta and understand the value of family within this great community. Therefore, with National Family Day just around the corner, we are here to tell you about the 5 best ways to celebrate Family Day in Norcross!

1. A Picnic in Betty Mauldin or Thrasher Park

One of our favorite places to spend some family time in Norcross is the Betty Mauldin Park. Home to the 100-year-old Champion American Elm, this picturesque park can be a fantastic place to picnic, play, and relax with your family. In addition to offering the perfect setting for family photo ops, this park is in the heart of downtown, so you can explore our shops and galleries once you’ve had your fill of the outdoors! Also within walking distance from downtown, Thrasher Park is another fantastic and vibrant place to have a family picnic. Especially if you have some rambunctious little ones, this park offers plenty of play spaces and areas for family-friendly activities.

2. Make a Day of It at Lillian Webb Park and Splash Pad

For some leisurely family fun in the sun, make a day of it at our Lillian Webb Park and Splash Pad. Featuring a three-tiered fountain, splash pad, and open green space, this park is the perfect place to bring your loved ones for Family Day. You can spend the day playing in the cool water, and enjoy a long, leisurely picnic lunch on our lush green space surrounding the park.

3. Dine at The Crossing Steakhouse

Another fun feature of Norcross is our historic train and depot where The Crossing Steakhouse is located. At this unique restaurant, you and your family can take a step back in time to 1878 when the “Airline Belle” train brought bustling activity through the depot. After snapping some pics by the train, your family can enjoy a delicious meal at the steakhouse inside the original depot building. This is another fun piece of Norcross history with ample photo ops and charm.

4. Historic Trolley Tour

As a perfect activity to pair with a meal at the historic Crossing Steakhouse, you and your family can attend a historic trolley tour of Norcross. Boarding at the Crossing parking lot, you can hop onto the charming vintage trolley and enjoy a guided tour back in time through Norcross’s rich history. This event takes place on Saturday, May 18th from 11:00am-12:30pm. To make a reservation for this tour, you can call 678-421-2048.

5. Monthly Family Festival

Although there are many fantastic ways to celebrate Family Day in Norcross, there is also a monthly family festival in Atlanta that we can recommend. Taking place in 3 different locations, Canton Street, Roswell Square, and behind City Hall, you can hop on a free trolley ride to experience each location. With free admission, you and your family can enjoy live music, food trucks, kids’ games, craft beer, and much more at this event on Thursday, May 16th from 5:00pm-9:00pm.
