Turn left onto Austin Ave. just past the Decatur Assembly of God Church. Go West on Austin Ave. until you get to the top of the hill and turn right into Edmiston Park. You will want to drive towards the concession stand, as you get close to the stand you will see the parking lot for this picnic area.
