You're invited to mix and mingle with your 2020 AOC President and Vice Presidents on an afternoon stroll on the Alpharetta Big Creek Greenway.
A greenway is a linear park, for recreation and alternative transportation, with open spaces for people as well as natural areas for plants and animals. The Big Creek Greenway is primarily a 12-foot wide concrete path that meanders through the deciduous woods along Big Creek in Alpharetta. The greenway offers an ideal setting for walking, jogging, roller blading, and biking.
We will meet in the parking lot of Jekyll Brewing Company. From there, we will cross the street and get on the Greenway. We will walk south a ways before turning around and walking back to our starting point. We'll be on the lookout for deer, heron, turtles, rabbits, and wild turkeys that are often near the trail at dusk.
Optional: After returning to the parking lot, the trip leaders will walk inside Jekyll Brewing Company for a brewery tour and tasting. Learn how beer is made, and sample the varieties that Jekyll has to offer. There are fun games to play such as giant Jenga with wheel of fortune challenges. Everyone is welcome to join us.
|How to Get There:|
2855 Marconi Drive, Alpharetta, Georgia 30005
From Georgia 400, take the Windward Parkway exit (#11). Head east on Windward Parkway (turn right if you were traveling north on 400). Go approximately 1/2 mile on Windward Parkway, then turn right on Marconi Drive. Go .3 miles to the parking lot for Jekyll Brewing on the right. There will be a sign for "Marconi Forest." (If you reach a sign for "McKesson" you have gone too far).
