Buckhead's crowning jewel isn't a mall or a restaurant or even an architectural achievement; it's not something humans built. The Blue Heron Nature Preserve is a twenty-five acre natural wilderness located just off heavily-trafficked Roswell Road in Atlanta, Georgia. It is a combination of four pieces of land along and around Nancy Creek.

Along the trails, hikers are greeted by native plants and trees, and encounter wildlife, such as deer, foxes, beavers, coyotes, muskrats, woodpeckers, turtles, egrets, geese and blue herons.

The nature preserve also has a community garden, which is part of the Park Pride Project.
