May brings another festival to Atlanta, the Kirkwood Spring Fling and Tour of Homes in the Kirkwood neighborhood south of Candler Park. The event has a 5k, artist market, children’s area, beer and food to enjoy.
The location of the festival is Bessie Branham Park at 2051 Delano Drive. The closest MARTA station is East Lake on the blue rail line, which is about a 20-minute walk away. Take the College Avenue/South Parking exit out of the station and at street level, turn right on College Avenue then left on Norwood Avenue and walk about three blocks (see walking map). Bring your bike with you on the train for a shorter commute.
You can also take bus 24 from the Candler Park Station. Signal to exit the bus after passing downtown Kirkwood and the gas station. From the bus stop, walk toward the large brick church and cross the street at the crosswalk to reach Norwood Drive. Walk about two blocks to reach the park (view map).
