BUCKHEAD REdeFINED – PARKS AND GREENSPACE

6-greespace26: DEFINE THE CIVIC HEART OF THE COMMUNITY THROUGH PARKS AND GREENSPACE

Buckhead will be united by a network of high-quality parks and plazas that are safe and accessible to all who live, work, and visit the district. Buckhead’s greenspaces will meet the area’s programmatic needs, and provide a balance of passive and active recreation, while incorporating best practices in sustainability and bold urban design. The network of green will include a combination of new parks, intimate plazas, welcoming courtyards, walkable lanes, and possibly a signature park atop GA400. While community consensus was generally favorable towards the concept of the signature park, questions regarding cost, funding and long-term maintenance will need to be addressed.
