McFarlane Nature Park, 280 Farm Road SE, Marietta 30067
The entrance to Farm Road is on Paper Mill Road, about 1/3-mile west of its intersection with Johnson Ferry Rd SE. **The most visible sign is labelled “Gateside Place” and is the entrance to a subdivision**. Look for the left turn!; if you see “Atlanta Country Club Drive” you’ve gone too far.
Farm Road is a simple gravel driveway. After you drive in, you will come into a gravel parking area in front of a large white home. Parking is to your left in the open field. Please turn left; there are signs directing you, and park in an organized way on the grass field. Before you turn, you’ll see the main area on your right, with picnic tables, a large brick grill and a shelter, which is where we will be.
