Knight Park, a City of Atlanta Park on the Westside’s Knight Park / Howell Station neighborhood, hosted its first public meeting on April 20th as part of Park Pride’s Park Visioning process to get feedback and input about what community members would like to see as part of their dream greenspace.
The Park Visioning Program makes it possible for a community to present a unified voice in the planning for their park. The result is a conceptual master park plan that can be used not just as a means to gain City support for the project, but as a fundraising tool as well.
Approximately 30 community members attended and contributed to the “vision board” that collected ideas of the variety of amenities that neighbors would like to see in a re-imagined Knight Park. Some examples include: a pavilion, a water feature, more flowers, a nature trail, more shade and local art displays.
The Park Visioning process will continue throughout the year with more public meetings – stay tuned to the Park Pride calendar for future date announcements!
We look forward to facilitating the Knight Park community through the Park Visioning process and seeing what wonderful ideas they come up for their park!
