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.
We finally found it, and where to park, and how to get there. It was absolutely beautiful. At 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.
He had a horse track to run his horses on too, that is now the VA Hospital.
It was a beautiful day and the pups had a great time. You really need to check this one out. We will show some more parks for your “StayCation” this summer!
