We all need time in nature, but did you know that there is a beautiful nature preserve in Decatur? Lullwater Preserve on Emory University’s campus features a 2.4 mile urban hike filled with a pedestrian suspension bridge over the south fork of Peachtree Creek, mill ruins, Candler Lake, wildlife and grassy areas for picnics.

You will also see Lullwater House, a 1926 Tudor mansion built by the Candler family and designed by Ivey and Crook, which is now home to Emory University presidents.
