Constitution lakes is composed of two separate but close lakes. They’re both surrounded by boardwalks that help you take a closer look into the lake. When I first saw the lake I assumed it was a swamp. The water is muddy and you can hardly see where the bottom is. Theirs also a lot of garbage fond around the ends of the lake, such as empty water bottles and soda cans. The trees are also dead without any leaves on them since it’s winter time. However it reminds you of a winters day where all you want to do is wrap yourself in a blanket and have a bonfire while looking at this...

Constitution Lakes Park Constitution Lakes Park is usually deserted when it’s 30 degrees outside. It is quite peaceful to go when your alone and have more time to actually see every little aspect of the lake. In the video you can see the breeze in the trees as well as in the water. As well as being able to hear the wind pounding into my phone. It’s a tranquilizing view and makes me wish I was still there gazing into the water and hoping a beaver comes popping out. However since it’s winter there isn’t much wildlife to...

Constitution Lakes Park Exterior Built Environment Description

At first you’re lost and have to open up three different types of navigation systems in order to find Constitution Lakes Park. Then just when your circling around for the third time about to give up, you see a sign in front of you that reads “Constitution Lakes Park”. You then drive inside only wondering if this really is the entrance to the park and not just a closed entrance that leads you to your doom. However, you still keep on driving because you know whatever is waiting on the other side will be absolutely worth the experience. Constitution Lakes Park is located in southeast Atlanta about 7 miles from Georgia State University, which is about a 15 minute drive without traffic. DeKalb County bought the park in 2003 and made it into what it is now. Including the boardwalk, the parking lot, and of course the famous Doll Head Trail. Constitution Lakes park is a nature preserve like no other. It’s inside the city and incorporates to the Industrial Area. It’s surrounded by a lot of wildlife activity and still has a part of Atlanta in it. You can find the regular things a park will naturally have such as benches and a beautiful view and trees. However you want see a playground for little kids. And unlike any other Park you won’t see a Doll Head Trail. Although the thought of a Doll Head Trail may sound creepy and scary, it’s actually very artsy and kid friendly. The Park does encourage you to add onto the Doll Head Trail but only by adding whatever you find in the park. Taggers...

Hidden deep inside Constitution Lakes Park you will find yourself going inside the Doll Head Trail. There are many more signs guiding you into the Doll Head Trail, however this is the main one and first one you see. The signs for the Doll Head trail are all unique in they’re own way. They always have something sticking onto the signs such as a doll head, or a dolls hand, but always have bobs. They’re signs that fit in with the whole “doll heads in a forest” scenario. Which is exactly what you expect and want to see when...

After walking a cement sidewalk you find yourself standing in front of a board walk with two paths to decide which way to go. On the left hand side of the board walk leads you to the famous Doll Head Trail. On the right hand side you can continue to watch and take in the beautiful surroundings of the lake. This is a significant part of the lake because changing from a sidewalk pavement to a wooden boardwalk is a view that catches your attention...
