EVENT PLAN: "Perfect 10" summer weather is expected this Sunday with comfortable low humidity for a change and a virtually cloud-free sky! Hope you can join us for this leisurely paced late afternoon outing. Frazier-Rowe Park and the Coralwood Nature Preserve are heavily forested DeKalb County parks that adjoin one another here in my own "Oak Grove" neighborhood in NE metro Atlanta. On this easy but adventurous ~4-mile hike we'll explore their gently rolling creekside terrain. I'm proud to be among the dozens of park "friends" who volunteer year-round to maintain and improve the fine trail network and the amazing variety of colorful native trees, shrubs, & flowers and abundant wildlife.
WHERE & WHEN? We'll gather a few minutes before 5:00 PM by the shady Frazier-Rowe Park trailhead & bulletin board which adjoins the entrance to "Sprig Restaurant. " It's on the edge of the woods on the eastern end of the parking lot at Vista Grove Plaza shopping center. See Directions & GPS Info below, and for a zoomable map or satellite view of this spot click the above square blue & green "Event Location" icon.
CANINE COMPANIONS are OK. Bring your well-behaved dog if you like, but make sure that he or she is leashed and under your control at all times, and in your registration notes please indicate size, breed, name, etc.
MORE ABOUT the PARKS: DeKalb County's Frazier-Rowe Park was founded in 2013 and named for two families of different ethnicity who lived in harmony there in the mid-20th century. Frazier-Rowe and its directly adjoining Coralwood Nature Preserve boast together about 15 acres of panoramic natural terrain. The trail network, floral gardens, bridges and other structures have been designed, built and maintained by hard-working local citizens, Boy Scout volunteers, etc. Our "Friends of Frazier-Rowe" volunteer group has been awarded thousands of dollars in "prize grants" for our good works, with the funds applied to build a beautiful picnic & concert pavilion, scenic sidewalks, a playground and more. - Affirms that folks of all ages can make a big difference to their community while having fun working together in the great outdoors!
