Hebert Taylor Park is located on the northern end of the Daniel Johnson Nature Preserve, and can be accessed from Johnson Road Northeast. There is plenty of street parking on the surrounding residential streets. Once you arrive, you can start your adventure on the nature trail that follows along the South Fork Peach Tree Creek. For the most part the trails are flat and wide, but as the park is in a valley there is no entrance that isn't steep, and there may be stream-crossings with no bridge. This is the pawfect opportunity for your pal to cool their paws and splash around in the creek.
Most pet-parents choose to let their pups run leash free here, but being that Herbert Taylor Park is not a designated dog park, the City of Atlanta mandates that dogs should remain on leash. Herbert Taylor park has a more natural, rugged vibe, and has limited amenities, so bring any essentials, such as clean-up bags and water. The pathways can get muddy, so it's a good idea to bring a towel for your car. You're sure to leave the park with a wet, tired, and happy dog.
Please always pick up after your pal in this park, and make sure you only leave footprints and paw prints. Be sure your pup remains respectful to all other creatures, humans and canine alike.
You and your doggo are sure to have a tail-wagging good time in Herbert Taylor Park!
