Constitution Lake

 The entrance is on S. River Rd. near the Nally Truck place. There is an unmarked gravel road which leads to the parking area. Says Mr. X

We could not find this park although we were in the area. How about some signs on Moreland Ave.? Says HelenFredrick

Do you get to Constitution Lake from Kenton Place? Is there a road directly to the lake? Says Larry Schnee

Constitution Lakes is an old brickworks that was closed down about 50 years ago. The
    lakes were created by rainwater filling the holes left from digging the clay out and the canals connecting it to the nearby South River. DeKalb County bought the 125 acre property in 2003 and added a parking lot,a paved walkway down
to the lakes and a boardwalk around one end of the lakes. It's a good spot for birding, with water and shore birds as well as forest birds in the woods around the lakes. There is a train track- still used- on the back side of the lakes with a road alongside that goes to the South River where the train crosses over. DeKalb County allows fishing in all their lakes, and the people who fish at Constitution Lakes routinely leave all their trash there. As more people  
    learn about Constitution Lakes, we hope to be able to educate them about being good stewards to enlist their help in maintaining this area. There is a clean-up day scheduled for April 17, 2010 beginning at 9 am in the parking lot. Says Joy Carter
