Currently, that residential area is cut off from the two parks, playgrounds, ball parks, tennis courts, library and other amenities by heavily-traveled North Druid Hills Road. The quiet neighborhood streets north of that artery don’t align with those to the south, forcing joggers or anyone on a bike to risk a run or ride along North Druid Hills Road to get to the other side.
The PATH Foundation has been building paths all around metro Atlanta with Phase 4 of the South Peachtree Creek Trail to connect Spring Creek Road, via crosswalk across North Druid Hills Road, to the well-used Mason Mill-to-Medlock trail. The boardwalk snakes between the trees and over the creeks between North Druid Hills Road and the Mason Mill Tennis Center. Much of the trail is 15-20 feet above the ground as it twists and turns to avoid a majority of the trees that make this place special. Handrail installation began in March along with concrete trail construction and placement of amenities.
