For the Kids or Kids in All of Us



Thanks to father and friend Russ Loyd, a play date has been set up at one of Macon's most beautiful playgrounds and parks along the Ocmulgee River, where some of you may choose to kayak that day with our friends at Ocmulgee Expeditions.

Below, find all of the play date details, straight from Russ (whose cute daughter you see in the photo above):

What: Kids' Play Date at Amerson Water Works Park

When: April 30th, 2011, starting at 10-10:30 until the kids get tired
Where: 2600 Riverview Road, Macon, Ga., 31204


The Walden/Weatherford wedding, also known as the "18 Wheels of Love Tour 2011" and "The WWW (Walden/Weatherford Wedding)," is shaping up to be as much fun as a Jackie Treehorn pool party. I am adding to the weekend's festivities by setting up a trip to a great new playground/ park in Macon the morning of the wedding.
This accomplishes several things:
1. allows friends to spend more time together
2. meet new friends before the wedding
3. wear out the kids
4. it's free
5. see a great new Macon playground / hiking / preservation area

This gathering is very informal and mostly just something free to do to do with (or without the kids) enjoying a beautiful day in Macon, Ga.
The is central to all parts of Macon and less than 1 mile off of I-75 and Riverside Dr.

Amerson Water Works Park (AWWP) was recently completed by New Town Macon, is a part of the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, and, according to James T. Weatherford, is the "Ronnie Van Zant" of parks in the Middle Georgia Area. AWWP offers hiking trails, biking trails, wildlife viewing, canoeing, boating, covered picnic tables and a playground.
Below is a link to a map of park and amenities.

Everyone come self sufficient with water & snacks. There are some portable toilets on site and a covered pavilion with picnic tables.
The Park Rules are here including info on the $3 parking fee.
All the best and I look forward to seeing/meeting you on Saturday afternoon.
Cheers!
