“We are creating a healthy and sustainable city where everyone can bring and build their dreams,” Reed said. “Our Westside residents deserve best-in-class parks and infrastructure, and with this project, we are delivering on our promise.”
Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Amy Phuong, Department of Watershed Management Commissioner Kishia L. Powell, Councilman Michael Julian Bond, Renew Atlanta General Manager Faye DiMassimo and Atlanta Beltline Partnership Executive Director Rob Brawner attended the unveiling Friday.
