Great place for a hike or a soccer game
Apr 2021
Henderson Park has all the community amenities you’d want—hiking, soccer, and a community garden. It’s a quiet space in Tucker.with lots of green space. You’d hardly know I-285 (Atlanta’s perimeter highway) is just a few miles away.

Great hiking!
Feb 2021
This is a great place to hike with my pup and close by. In some areas crossing the creek is challenging but they are building bridges in certain areas and you always have an option to take a different trail to avoid the water. The views are nice and the trails are wide. My only advice is during the spring/summer the poison ivy is pretty bad so if you are allergic like I am wait to go in the fall and winter.

A Good Time Was Had By All
Sep 2020 • Family
Recently on a beautiful sunny September day, my wife and I took our 6 year old Granddaughter to the park. My wife enjoyed sitting by the lake while watching her play at the playground. Meanwhile I enjoyed walking the easy to moderate natural terrain trails that wind through the woods by Lake Erin. Trails are uneven with rocks, roots, and a few steps to climb. Lots of birds and other wildlife along the way. Even spotted two turtles sitting in the sun on a limb in the middle of the lake (lucky enough to snap a picture of them). There is also a short paved trail if you prefer. A good time was had by all. Open daily dawn to dust. Parking in several different areas. Dog friendly.
Amenities include:
1-6 miles of hiking trails
2-Kids playground
3-Tennis courts and soccer fields
4-Restroom facilities with water fountains adjacent to the tennis courts
5-An observation platform on Lake Erin
6-A pavilion with picnic tables adjacent to the playground

The Woods

Wonderful to take a stroll and decompress, let the strains and stresses of the day/week roll off your shoulders.

Off leash dogs are a regular occurrence
Jun 2020 • Solo
Too many off leash dogs. Not just in the wooded trails but on the paved section near the children's playground. Some dogs aren't anywhere in sight of their owners.

A great place to lose oneself in the woods.
Jan 2020
Although many trails are identified by either red, white or blue markings, many other trails are unmarked with no signs as to where they will end up. The park itself is surrounded by residences and playing fields at one of the ends so it would be hard to get very lost for long. The treed part of the park focuses on a man-made lake near the center which is a good landmark to avoid getting lost. Along the park edges there are three water cascades whose flow depends mightily on how much it has rained. The best one, which is closest of the three to the lake, generally is always flowing water and is very pretty. The park has many ravines which descend to the lake so there are plenty of opportunities to get a good workout walking the trails. I used to regularly walk the Cherokee Trail in Stone Mountain park which is nearly 5 miles long but now I am well into my eighties I find I can enjoy 2.5 mile loops in Henderson park better. It is a lovely park to lose oneself walking among the trees which are of many different types. During the week at least, the park trails are not well used so it is generally a very peaceful place. Walkers with dogs generally follow the rules and have them on a leash for which I am most grateful.

Great Atmosphere

The lake was serene.
All we did was sit and chat and eat our snacks. We had a great time. We will be returning in the Summer

Great Park in Dekalb County!!
Aug 2019 • Couples
Wow. We found this place about a year ago and keep are making it a regular weekend destination! Great walking trails for the dogs! They have a great playground and are currently building a dock on the lake. We lived in town for years and were used to having Piedmont Park nearby. Although very different parks, Henderson is a great place for hikers and people who enjoy peace and quiet!

Great in-town hike
Feb 2019 • Solo
One of the best things about Atlanta is the many green spaces within the Perimeter. Henderson Park offers nearly six miles of hiking trails just off the Chamblee Tucker exit on I-85. Hikes include a 1/2 mile lake circuit and even a few minor hill climbs. All trails are well marked and cleared.
Currently Tucker is clearing some land and putting in improvements, but there is no machinery on the hiking trails. Parking is ample on both sides of the park and free.

Nice trails
May 2018 • Couples
Park is a large site with two main entrances, soccer fields, tennis courts and playground. It also has a series of hiking trails recently renovated by the friends if the park. New bridges and board walks enhance the trails.
Trails are hilly and can seem a little rough. Use care as there is poison ivy on the sides of the trail.
Many people bring their dogs on the walk. There is also a nice lake with many birds.
This is a nice urban park to visit.
