Dudley Park

Dudley Park is a 32-acre park nestled in the confluence of Trail Creek and the North Oconee River, just a short walk from downtown Athens and the University of Georgia. It is operated by the Trails and Open Spaces staff of Leisure Services.

Dedicated in 1953 to Alonzo Gordon Dudley, who governed Athens from 1926-1935 and 1938-1939, Dudley park features majestic hardwoods, open fields, several picnic areas, and connections to multiple trails.
