An excited crowd gathered this past Wednesday at the Buckhead Theatre to get a first look at Phase I concept drawings for the ambitious Park Over GA400. The Buckhead Community Improvement District’s BCID board presented a nearly half-mile long park that “provides ample capacity for plazas, lawns, gardens, pavilions and more. A defining feature of the design includes an allée of high-canopied trees running the length of the park that blends with Atlanta’s urban forest canopy and creates broad shade and memorable open space from Lenox Road to Peachtree Road.
A very exciting part of this new design are the flyover walking paths that allow the existing Path400 trail to connect directly through the center of the park and pass unimpeded over Lenox and Peachtree Roads. Integrating the new park so directly with the miles of existing trails on either side will greatly enhance access and usability of both the trail system and the park.
