Each of us can do our part in keeping nature areas clean. We want you to enjoy your visit: bring a picnic, munch on snacks, and rehydrate during your hike. But, please make sure you leave no trace of your visit. Take advantage of the trash cans provided at each nature area.



Some visitors have even hauled out more than their share of trash. Now that's stewardship!

Wetlands at Flat Creek

Flat Creek Nature Area is a 513-acre 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.

Southern Conservation Trust has installed a mulch trail, a 1200 foot boardwalk and two viewing platforms with benches. The boardwalk can be reached by the nature trail starting beside the Fred Brown Amphitheater or from the Peachtree City cart path.

A walk on the boardwalk reveals trees and plants typical of a Piedmont forested wetland, including red maples, chestnut oak, American hornbeam and other native plants like turtlehead ferns and cardinal flower. Numbered markers on the boardwalk indicate tree species.

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 is named in honor of former Peachtree City Mayor Howard Morgan. The Fayette County Water Authority provided funding for the boardwalk.
