Parks are good for people, good for the environment, and good for communities! Parks are treasured neighborhood amenities where children can play safely, friendships start, and memories are formed. Parks are all about community, and that’s why community leadership and involvement is so important when designing new parks.
In 2021, Atlanta City Council authorized the City of Atlanta to purchase land from The Conservation Fund for a new park along Lower Paul Avenue. That land will soon become Riverside’s newest public park!
This park is part of a regional strategic effort, called Chattahoochee Riverlands, which aims to connect communities all along the Chattahoochee River from the Buford Dam to Chattahoochee Bend State Park in northwest Coweta County.
Park Pride’s team of professional landscape architects are working with the Riverside community to help build a shared vision for a park based on the ideas and concerns of the whole community. Through neighborhood meetings, surveys, and engagement, we are working closely with the Riverside community to produce a plan that will guide future investments in this new park. The visioning process builds on planning work already done and will result in a conceptual plan of the park, including recommendations for trail connectivity and other major park features.
Many thanks to the dozens of community members came out to participate in the final public meeting in the park visioning process and share your input as to what you’d like to see in this future park.
