Grand opening of new Charlie Loudermilk Park set March 31

Believe it or not, Spring is just around the corner and it is time to think about budding trees and flowers, and the re-dedication  of Charlie Loudermilk Park, which is now scheduled for March 31, according to the Buckhead Community Improvement District (CID).

The clock tower is shown in place in Charlie Loudermilk Park on Jan. 31.

CID Executive Director Jim Durrett told the CID’s board Tuesday (Feb. 24) that the construction on Charlie Loudermilk Park is nearing completion, and should be open to the public the afternoon of March 31, following an invitation-only grand opening ceremony at noon that day.

The park, which sits in the triangle of Peachtree and Roswell roads and Sardis Way in the heart of Buckhead, will feature a green open area, patio seating, a waterfall feature, new walkways, lighting, trees and flowers, a statue in honor of Charlie Loudermilk and a 50-foot clock tower with a belfry that will chime on the hour, but not 24 hours a day, Durrett said.

The clock tower was included to link this historic region of Buckhead with today’s modern, urban design. In addition, the sidewalks around the park also were expanded to cater to pedestrians walking the busy roads. To see the CID’s photos of the clock tower installation, Click here.

The CID also has promised to get the public involved in a contest to set the musical choices for the carillons that are located at the top of the clock tower. So, keep checking back with BucklheadView for more information on that and the park’s opening day.
