I wanted to take you around the block with Coop and me. So here we go, Here we go up the driveway. One of the reasons we love the neighborhood is it feels like we are in the country, but we are in the city. Up the road High tension wires, so that is one not so nice thing. Then up on Sheridan there is a lovely church….This is a great neighborhood. The little ledge that Coop loves to walk on the top of…..Yep on the wall walk….Then there is this house…They just built it, they tore down a cute small house and built this HUGE House.This was a daughter/daddy project from the folks on the corner. I love it! So, that is a brief look at our walk, we love it, hope you did too!
Tanyard Creek Park is off of Collier Road and in 2010 they completed the Northside Trail on the BeltLine.
Parts of the Civil War were also fought here. There are a lot of historical markers here. When I got my 1st dog, I used to bring her here, but it didn’t have the BeltLine back then. It is a beautiful park though.That is Collier Road, you go underneath and there is some really cool artwork.Keep going and you walk past Bobby Jones Golf Course.Lots of geese on the course, what a big mess, huh? They are doing a ton of construction at the old Colonial Hills Complex, it was scaring Coop out so we turned around. Staycationers will love this park there are two playground areas.When you get to the end of this portion you are in some town homes.Then to get back you go through a cool covered bridge under a railroad trestle, very cool.Yes that is Bradley Cooper posing! It is a beautiful park, and not too crowded. Have you been here? Is there a park near you I should visit?
We are so lucky in Georgia and Atlanta to have so many Parks and Trails! I found this one today and I am so glad I did. It is a beautiful day today, crisp and clear, the trail is a little over a mile. The scenery is great! Cute little bird houses…Lots of graffiti. Not tons, I guess the appropriate amount for train tunnels. It is pleasant and peaceful. There is a park at the end with many baseball fields. (or the beginning depending on where you start)This park is a the back of Mason Mill Park off of Clairmont Road. Let me know of a park I can visit near you. Happy Staycation!!!
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.
Even on a Staycation, it’s fun to take a walk. It’s the more the merrier when you walk, so my neighbors Catfish and Pumpkin help me out!
They have become very popular in the neighborhood!
