Do you live near or regularly use Grant Park? Are you concerned about the future of the Historic SE Quadrant of Grant Park? Do you have ideas for how this part of Grant Park could be enhanced and preserved for future Atlantans to love and enjoy?
If so, we need to hear your voice!
The Grant Park community is beginning a park vision plan for the Historic SE Quadrant of Grant Park in partnership with Park Pride and other community organizations, including Atlanta Preservation Center, Historic Oakland Foundation, Grant Park Conservancy, Grant Park Neighborhood Association, Grant Park Parent Network, M.H. Mitchell, Inc., Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School, Viridis Garden Design Inc, The Wrens Nest, and Zoo Atlanta.
There are a number of pressures on this part of Grant Park, including the Grant Park Gateway Parking Deck, Atlanta BeltLine, Zoo Atlanta, and a collective understanding of the Fort Walker site. These pressures will impact how this part of Grant Park evolves. Creating a community-based plan that considers these pressures will shape this evolution in way that is responsive to community concerns.
The Visioning Process will result in a conceptual master plan reflective of the community’s desires for what they would like to see in their neighborhood park. Your opinion is critical to the success of this much-loved and valued greenspace.
