The Georgia Poetry in the Parks poetry trails were installed in April and May 2022 on the Michelle Obama Trail, the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, and Glenlake Park in DeKalb County. Another trail will be hosted by the Georgia Writers Museum in Eatonton.
Accessing the Michelle Obama Trail:
The Michelle Obama Trail is accessible from the Georgia State University-Perimeter College Decatur Campus. To access the poems on the Michelle Obama Trail, enter the Georgia State University-Perimeter College campus from Clifton Springs Road and look for Parking Lot 3. At the back of the lot, you will find visitor parking and signs for the trail. Note: plugging “Georgia State University Perimeter College Decatur Campus” into mapping software will lead you to the college’s main entrance on Panthersville Road. The DeKalb Regional Youth Development Center is located across the street at 2946 Clifton Springs Rd, Decatur, GA 30034.
Additional maps and directions coming soon.
