Like a Bridge Over Tranquil Waters. . .

Mild to warm temperatures make for a perfect day to stroll through Constitution Lakes.

It's December, so it's supposed to be cold, or at least chilly, right?

But Sunday saw unusually warm temperatures in Atlanta. The thermometer crossed to 70-degree mark, making it a nice day for a stroll through Constitution Lakes in South DeKalb County, just off Moreland Avenue.

The warm spell is expected to last for several more days, with today's temperature to hit a high of 74 degrees.

It's way deep in the park. It's close to the area that overlooks I-285 near the Bouldercrest exit.

Thanks. I never knew.

Is it safe back there? Where do you park? Could you go running or mountain biking with the family? What's the 411?

You park at the entrance of the park which is at S. River Industrial Blvd. and Moreland Ave. Joy Carter turned me on to it. The bridge is way deep and you have to cross a little stream to get to it. But I go there with my dog. I've never had a problem and you usually come across other walkers, hikers, fishers and birders (at times, the illegal hunter, too). I could see running and biking but you still have that stream to cross and and the grasses can be tall in some places. After a while, you forget you're in a big city. I like it.
