Construction is well underway for Midtown Atlanta’s 10th street park, an exciting new initiative to enhance the community’s outdoor activities.
The collaboration between Dewberry Foundation and the Midtown Alliance promises fun for the whole family, with games, a light installation, and a dog park set to take over the iconic corner of Peachtree and 10th Streets.
In a recent update from Midtown Atlanta’s Brian Carr, they write, “Dirt continues to move at the corner of Peachtree and 10th Streets, where the vision for a new park space and a central neighborhood anchor is becoming more real by the day.”
Known for hosting lawn games and spectacular holiday light installations, both of these renowned offerings have inspired the park’s transformation.
The new space will be split up into three “rooms”, one for games, one with a climbable structure that lights up, and one with a fenced dog park.
As well as its brand-new art structure by Fabio Novembre for Vondom, there will also be a mural at the new park designed by Jasmine Nicole Williams. Midtown recently installed a stunning bird installation over Commercial Row Commons.
Although there’s no exact date for the park’s opening, there’s a fun event planned for November to celebrate the park’s reopening.
People who spend time in Midtown decided that access to open space should be the district’s main priority. According to the 2019 Midtown Community Survey, 95% of those who live in, work in or visit the district want to see more access to small parks and plazas.
You can now take the 2022 Midtown Community Survey. The Midtown Alliance will look through the surveys to pin-point the main areas that locals care about and report the findings to their organization’s near-term work plan.
