The Ocmulgee Heritage Trail is very nice - right along the river in Macon.
At the entrance we used we did notice several homeless people - while they did approach us - it does seem the mayor and police could better secure the area.
There is a nice Otis Redding Jr statue here.
Another downside is parking - there really is none at the Charles Jones Gateway Park entrance - just a small area to pull over - right across from the homeless people (no security for ones car)
There can also be better lighting.
So - cool park area and area to walk - but - go in a group, go in daytime, don't leave valuables in car - and good luck finding a parking spot.
Macon has potential with this - but work needs to be done.
