Friendship Forest Wildlife Sanctuary is an approximately 15.7 acre park located entirely within the City of Clarkston. The access road is located off E. Ponce de Leon Avenue approximately ½ mile north of the Clarkston central business district.
In 2002 the City Council designated the area as Greenspace and that it shall only be used for wet land protection and passive outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking, running, jogging, biking, and walking. In 2004 the Council used Greenspace Program funds to purchase an additional 2.84 acres and the area was established as a Bird
Sanctuary to protect the local wildlife.
Friendship Forest is a quiet place to walk, look for birds and other wild animals and enjoy nature.
