Rudi Kiefer: See a slice of Georgia's history at Linwood Nature Preserve
Rudi Kiefer
Even with all the development going on, Gainesville has places where nature can be enjoyed in its original setting. One of those is the Linwood Nature Preserve, a partnership between Gainesville Parks & Recreation and the Redbud Project. Located on Linwood Drive off Thompson Bridge Road, this 30-acre urban forest offers views of old-growth forest and native plants that would have been familiar to the first settlers in Georgia.
