The county is partnering with the PATH Foundation to open the nearly two-mile boardwalk by the end of this month. 

"The trail is the new beachfront property, everybody wants to live near a trail. And PATH's goal is to connect metro Atlanta through a series of trail networks," says Jonathan McCaig, the construction manager on this project.

Beautiful City is WABE's series about places to go in Atlanta to ... get away from Atlanta.

Today, that’s North Decatur.

There, the South Peachtree Creek Trail links two neighborhoods, two parks and even two sports.

On one end are the baseball fields of Medlock Park and, on the other, the tennis courts of Mason Mill Park.

But you’ll find that this path does much more than connect Point A to Point B.
