This greenspace—which considers itself a “haven for nature in an urban environment”—dates back to the 1800s, when North Buckhead was home to the Creek Indians. These days, the 30-acre preserve is the place to see beavers and learn about bees and butterflies. Good times to visit: summertime’s Doggie Daze—which features a free guided tour and bath for your pup—or the fall open house’s gardening classes, artist presentations, and market. bhnp.org
