Visioning begins for park on PATH400 at 519 Old Ivy Road

Livable Buckhead (LBI) has partnered with the city of Atlanta parks department to develop the vision plan for 519 Old Ivy Road, where an old home was torn down to make way for a park at the top end of Phase I of PATH400.

The city will be acting as the design team and LBI will be leading the public engagement. A steering committee has been created to guide the work and met for the first time on July 16th.

The process will run through October at which time it will wrap up with a concept plan for the development of the park, giving the ability to determine the cost of the development and to begin identifying sources of funding for it.

In partnership with the city of Atlanta, LBI brokered the acquisition of 519 Old Ivy Road, a one-acre site adjacent to the completed Phase I section of PATH400. The addition of 519 Old Ivy alongside PATH400 allows for an improved connection to Old Ivy Road.

Acquiring the land while construction was active means that much of the preparation for a park is already done, saving time and money.

      We live in the area and have a little boy, are so excited for a park to be this close. When do you think this will be completed?? I assume there will be a playground for children?
