With funding from a Knight Neighborhood Challenge Grant, FOTSP turned to landscape architect Robert Apsley to design a gently winding path from the central fountain to the South gateway.  The path meanders near the owl carving and through the stone bridge rising between the rain gardens, down to Oglethorpe/Adams and back up Oglethorpe to the parking lot.  

After the sidewalk is poured, the College Hill Alliance will help FOTSP etch the leaves of some of the trees in the park onto sidewalk sections on this path, allowing children to try to match etchings to actual leaves in the autumn.  This is the most natural area of the park, containing the most trees, and it’s also the most shaded area of the park, the trail project restoring a crucial and long lost connection to the park from both the Tattnall Heights Neighborhood and the Macon Dog Park.
