    Park board was blank grass overgrown. Couldn't find a paved path as mentioned...maybe wrong directions

    According to the signs it is permit parking only. And towing is enforced...very confusing signs here. Called the park line but it was closed so we didnt want to risk it.

    The green way is actually interesting for a change of pace... once. Goes past a couple historic-type buildings, and is quite peacefull and removed despite the fact that it runs through downtown athens.

    If you're bored and dont have a road bike, might as well put some road tires and give it a go.
