Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is a great place to go for something different. The scenery is beautiful and peaceful with security so you can feel safe.

Nice place to walk, run, just get out for a little while. Needs more security, gets a little unsafe sometimes, but overall a good place to relax and enjoy nature.

This park is a wonderful way to walk along the riverfront in downtown Macon and view the Ocmulgee river. The Ocmulgee is a little appreciated river that winds through Macon from Jackson Lake where is begins. It is the drinking source for Macon and a pleasant stroll along its shores awaits you. Great place to walk, jog, or ride bikes.... More

Been here a number of time. This is a nice place to take the kids on a little walk or short bike ride. There is a little park with swings etc for the kids to play. Pretty safe during the day but gets a little iffy at evening. The bums start to show up as the sun goes down.

If it is not blistering hot, this is a great place to take the family and enjoy the day. There are walking trails and bike paths in addition to the other amenities. If nothing else it is a great place for a picnic.

Nice level path to run (I think about 3 miles round trip) that felt safe to this traveler. I parked at north end on cul de sac of a neighborhood. Parking lot on Spring St. has porta pottys for those of us with small bladders. :)
