Lullwater Preserve

This 154 acre preserve lies in the heart of Emory University’s campus. My neighbor Will wanted to take my walking buddies and his pups (remember Catfish and Pumpkin?) to a park, because they had been so good last week.IMG_0535

 

We finally found it, and where to park, and how to get there. It was absolutely beautiful. IMG_2602At first we drove up to the President’s house. It was a gorgeous Tudor. Originally built by Walter Turner Candler, son of Coca Cola mogul Asa Candler. He purchased the land in 1925, 230 acres and called it Lullwater farms. He loved nature and wanted to preserve the forest part of it. He added in Candler lake, by damning up a stream, South Fork Peachtree Creek. IMG_2606

He had a horse track to run his horses on too, that is now the VA Hospital. IMG_2630

It was a beautiful day and the pups had a great time. IMG_2623You really need to check this one out. We will show some more parks for your “StayCation” this summer!
