Hidden in the depths of the park at Constitution Lakes is an Atlanta landmark. The Doll’s Head Trail may be one of the creepiest places to catch some exercise in the entire city. Made even worse by the threat of rain on an overcast day, the trail takes on an almost sinister feel after passing by the fishing docks and heading into the woods. Then a sign appears announcing that the DHT is this way and the terror begins. Toys and trash have been reclaimed into art.
Actually it’s a brilliant idea by an unknown artist. The park at Constitution Lakes and the surrounding lowlands used to be absolutely littered as an unofficial dumping site for nearby neighborhoods. Now that has changed and the art, albeit slightly creepy, makes great use for a cleanup effort of the area. Throughout the trail the works of art stand as reminders of some of the eras long past. Record players, small black and white televisions, references to Dominoes’ The Noid, Rosie from The Jetsons and much more can be found along the wooded and somewhat overgrown path.
