Sugar Hill Snapshot

Sugar Hill is a city in Gwinnett County, in the Atlanta metro area. One tradition says the community was so-named because a freight wagon lost a wheel on a high hill, spilling its load of sugar.

Since the City of Sugar Hill, Georgia, was incorporated more than six decades ago, it has become one of the premier communities of the Atlanta Metro area. Minutes from Lake Lanier and the Georgia Mountains, but a short distance from the City of Atlanta, Sugar Hill’s country setting has much to offer.

The Sugar Hill City Park offers two pavilions, regulation fields and courts for sports, and an amphitheater. The Sugar Hill Golf Club is one of the best courses in the area and has reduced rates for city residents. The Sugar Hill Community Center offers a place for members of the community to meet and relax.

The ability of the leaders of Sugar Hill to keep all eyes and ears open to the needs of the community has enabled it to become and remain a city worthy of a reputation for living “The Sweet Life.”

The estimated population, in 2003, was 13,820.
