Published in April 2014, this guidebook includes 60 hikes within 30 miles of downtown Atlanta.

Springvale Park

This greenspace is in addition to those featured in Hiking Atlanta’s Hidden Forests.

Description: Springvale Park has two halves, on either side of Euclid Avenue. Although there are plans to add pedestrian access from both halves to Euclid Avenue, neither half is currently accessible directly from Euclid. Instead, the park can be accessed from Waverly Way. The southern half is a very natural area, while the northern half is a well-used community park with a playground and pond. The pond is home to a lot of wildlife, and it is quite common to see ducks, geese, and turtles here.


What’s there: Short natural-surface trail, playground, pond


History and historical markers: There are three historical markers at the park, all relating to the Civil War:

  1. Springvale Park
  2. Brig. Gen. A. M. Manigault’s Brigade
  3. Baker’s Brigade


Champion trees: There are a few nearby, but none in the park


Mileage: Under half a mile


Address: 900 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
