PATH foundation to establish trail hub in Centennial Olympic Park

The PATH Foundation has reached the $14.3 million goal of its “Make the Connection” campaign, the Atlanta non-profit announced Tuesday. The campaign aims to establish a recreational trail hub in Centennial Olympic Park, which will include an additional 37 miles of new trails.

PATH plans to develop a network of more than 200 miles of trails that connect to the Atlanta Beltline as well as outdoor destinations, like Panola Mountain State Park and Stone Mountain.

The James M. Cox Foundation, The Kendeda Fund, the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation and the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation are among top donors to the campaign.

“PATH has been making Atlanta a better place for more than 20 years, and this milestone will help it continue to promote healthy lifestyles, enhance community spirit and bring neighborhoods together,” said Jim Kennedy, chairman of Cox Enterprises.
