Visit Friendship Fore

The pleasantly named Friendship Forest is a public wildlife sanctuary that is owned by the City of Clarkston. Providing a lush haven for wildlife and their human admirers, this 16-acre stretch of land has been reclaimed and reworked, with the city government of Clarkston investing grant money in the project for the betterment of the community. In addition to adding some vegetation, the grant funds were used to remove asphalt from now-defunct roadways. This initiative aimed to provide the general public with an area for outdoor recreation and education, attract naturalists, and establish populations of native flora and fauna.

Higher Education in C

Even though it is a small town surrounded by more busy metropolitan areas, Clarkston is home to several institutions of higher learning. These institutions include Georgia Piedmont Technical College and Georgia Perimeter College's Clarkston campus, which is that school's oldest location in the state. Conveniently, these campuses are located in close proximity to Clarkston High School, meaning that high-achieving high school students may be able to take some classes for college credit before they even graduate. Continuing education courses are available for Clarkston's adult residents who are interested in enriching their lives or furthering their careers.

A Small Town's Big Hi

Clarkston was officially chartered in 1882, but its chapter in U.S. history began well before that. The area was initially settled as the Georgia Railroad was constructed in the 1830s. The section of the railroad that ran through what is today Clarkston was intended to boost Atlanta's commercial connection with neighboring cities and states. The railroad later served the unintended purpose of providing professionals in Atlanta with the opportunity to settle their families outside the city and commute to work, forming one of Georgia's first suburbs. Today, with urban sprawl encroaching on its borders, Clarkston has kept a relatively low population and intimate small-town feel.
