Line Creek Nature Area is a 70-acre public preserve along Line Creek off Highway 54 on the Fayette/Coweta County line. This popular Nature Area offers a mix of habitats – an upland hardwood forest, beautiful creekside granite outcroppings, and a rushing stream bordered by native azaleas. Visitors will enjoy a fishing dock on a small pond, a gazebo, and almost three miles of nature trails. Keep an eye out on the trails for a few historic sites! This stretch of Line Creek was home to multiple mills in the 1800s, and the remnants of their dams can still be seen today. When on the Mule Rock trail be sure to look for the Mule Rock carving! The nature area is furnished with picnic tables, small bridges, a rock amphitheater, and a few information kiosks. In 2017, Trinity Development completed the new Line Creek Wetland with an observation deck. This area catches and detains stormwater runoff that slowly feeds the small pond and eventually Line Creek. It displays the characteristics of a wetland and demonstrates how water is naturally slowed down and filtered.
The entrance to Line Creek Nature Area is located on Line Creek Drive, Peachtree City, GA 30269. It is adjacent to the shopping center with TJ Maxx, Ulta, and Newk’s, off of GA-54.
While many of our visitors like to bring their dogs along for the journey, we would like to remind everyone that dogs are required to be on a leash when at Line Creek.
Flat Creek Nature Area consists of 513-acres worth of wetland in Peachtree City that extends 3.5 miles along Flat Creek, from the Lake Peachtree spillway at Kelly Drive/McIntosh Trail downstream to Highway 74.
A connecting trail winds downhill from the Frederick Brown Amphitheater to a 1200 foot boardwalk and two viewing decks along Flat Creek. A stroll along the boardwalk reveals bottomland species of trees and plant life along with numerous wildlife species. Large hardwood trees provide gracious canopy cover creating a cool shady area with plenty of resources for wildlife. Some of the species frequently viewed along the boardwalk are grey squirrels, white-tailed deer, swamp rabbits, great blue herons, and the occasional red-shouldered hawk!
An additional viewing platform is located beside the cart path, south of Crosstown Road, thanks to the Peachtree City Rotary Club and Eagle Scout Kenneth Scott Molleson. The Howard Morgan Wetland and Nature Observation Deck are named in honor of former Peachtree City Mayor Howard Morgan. The Fayette County Water Authority provided funding for the boardwalk.
