This is the Georgia International Horse Park. From the beginning, it has been groomed for greatness. Since opening its gates in September of 1995, the GIHP has already served as the equestrian venue for the largest sporting event in the world: The 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. The park was the setting for all equestrian events, as well as mountain bike competition and the final two events of the modern pentathlon.

Today, the tradition continues as the GIHP plays host to a remarkable variety of special events. Whether you are planning an equestrian competition, festival, concert, wedding reception, family reunion or sports competition, the park's sprawling 1,400 acres can accommodate events of all shapes and sizes.

The park offers archery, boat rental, geocaching, orienteering, birding and tree-climbing programs. A paved trail is open for biking, roller blading, jogging and dog-walking, while forested fitness trails are open for hiking and running.

Panola Mountain is a 100-acre granite outcrop similar to Stone Mountain, but smaller and much more pristine. Park visitors will see the outcrop and its rare ecosystem just as Native Americans did centuries ago. Reservations are required for ranger-led hikes that teach about the rare plants and animals found in this habitat.

7. The Walk of Heroes Veterans War Memorial - Take a Walk Through History
Through the creation of your memorial park, which is located adjacent to Black Shoals Lake in north Rockdale County, who foster a common understanding of the sacrifices and uncommon dedication of veterans and their families. The main pathway, called “Walk of Heroes”, will portray a sense of the total commitment given by these men and women during the twentieth century through war conflicts and peacetime endeavors.

In a park setting, the memorial provides through a self-paced and self-guided tour, the opportunity for the public to reflect on the rights and freedoms enjoyed by today’s citizens in the United States of America, which have been preserved by unselfish acts of all veterans.

The park will display a series of quotes, wall carvings, statues, and specific enclaves, dedicated to the five wars and other conflicts of the twentieth century. Also, there will be sculptures to further express the bravery of every veteran who offered his or her all to protect the rights of every citizen. Spend a few moments at the helicopter display and reflecting at the on-site botanical garden before settling into an amphitheater during annual patriotic events.
