Join the Friends of Riverside Park this Saturday, August 1st, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. for a park clean up day. Volunteers will be building a bridge over the creek and clearing another segment of the walking trail. After the work day, residents of Riverside will be able to walk their dogs around the block of Rosemary, Main, Forrest and the first trail segment of Riveside Park.
Riverside Park is the 6.8 acre undeveloped City of Atlanta Park located along James Jackson Parkway between the Hartsfield Incinerator and the Busy Bee. Four Riverside neighborhood streets dead-end at Riverside Park: Forrest Avenue, Rosemary Street, West Main Street and George Street. Short term goals are to connect the dead-end streets through the park via walking trails. Long term goals are for these dead end streets to become neighborhood walking entrances to an expanded park called Riverwalk Atlanta with access to the Chattahoochee River and the proposed PATH Foundation Chattahoochee Trail.
