WHAT’S HAPPENING

Because of the pandemic, many Atlanta residents have been staying close to home.

For some, that has led to the discovery of many of the city’s hidden-gem greenspaces, places they can go to get some exercise and peace of mind.

One of those hidden gems is a beach – not for people – but for their dogs.

Nestled in a quiet swath of old growth hardwoods in the heart of Morningside, the Dog Beach is perfect for hiking, jogging and romping in the creek with your four-legged family members.
