Off-The-Beaten-Path Tour of 3 Tiny Atlanta 'Street Parks'

New, 2 comments


There are a lot of parks in Atlanta — the city's online compendium has 23 that start with the letter "A" alone — and plenty that could fit the "Micro Week" theme. The Grove Park neighborhood, though, is home to three of the city's most interesting greenspaces. On a trio of residential roads off Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, "street parks" called Evelyn Place, Gertrude Place and Matilda Place rule the roost. These parks are essentially extra-wide medians with a grassy, tree-lined twist — and unique approaches to inserting a little nature into the heart of the city.
