Claypit Pond Trail - one of over four miles of trails on the site.

Great Park Great Park with wonderful trails, beach, woods to picnic in and play, especially frisbee golf or simply walk

A neat little place to visit The nature center has a lot to offer for the price. That would be Free to very little $$. The last program I went to was about bats and how important they are. We even went bat watching!.

Outdoor fun for the family Nice hiking trails, a small but interesting selection of animals to see in the main building, very friendly volunteer staff, free admission. Small planetarium with limited showtimes.

The nature center is a facility of the Athens-Clarke County Department of Leisure Services and partners with Sandy Creek Nature Center Inc., a non-profit support group. This 225- acre wildlife sanctuary includes over 4 miles of nature trails, providing access to a variety of habitats typical of the Georgia piedmont: river floodplains, wetlands, upland pine and hardwood forests, fields, ponds, and streams. In 2012, Sandy Creek Nature Center completed a major expansion funded by SPLOST and community partnership dollars. Over 4,000 square feet were added to the Education & Visitor Center, including new exhibits and a planetarium. Sandy Creek Nature Center is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Property and trails are open sunrise to sunset daily.
