Stone Mountain Park Adventures

     My family has been to Stone Mountain Park many times over the past 10 years and we make new discoveries each time we visit.

The Playground This area never gets old to the kids, including the teenager.  There are two playground areas, one with lower equipment for the younger children and the other with towering equipment for the older kids.  Restrooms and water fountains are conveniently located near the playground.

Fishing We were quite surprised when we caught a fish during our very first fishing trip in the park.  The lakes house bass, bream, catfish and carp. There are grassy areas near the lake for a perfect picnic.
