Walk through tranquility as the mountain air tantalizes your being and the sights and sounds of the forest tantalizes you senses! Sit in one of our 2 pavilions or our many picnic tables along the creek for a nice picnic lunch! All of this right in the back yard of the town of Dahlonega. Get the serene scene of the high country with out having to travel more than town.
