City of Atlanta Scores Nearly 13 Acres for a New Tree-filled Park

The city of Atlanta has taken a step closer to its commitment to providing all residents with green and equitable space with the recent acquisition of nearly 13 acres of green space intended to become a new park. Officials say it’s one of the largest acquisitions of green space ever in Southwest Atlanta. While Atlanta claims abundant green space, some areas of the city, such as Southwest Atlanta and the Westside, are deficient in public parkland.
