The long-anticipated, oft-delayed Charlie Loudermilk Park has officially opened to the public, lending Buckhead a wide-open communal space among so much pricey shopping. Located at the confluence of Roswell and Peachtree roads at Buckhead Triangle, the park underwent a two-year, $2.5 million upgrade financed by philanthropist, businessman and owner of many of the surrounding buildings and lots Charlie Loudermilk. And just so you don't forget it, there's a life-size sculpture of him in the park. Other highlights: a small grassy lawn, water feature, 50-foot clock tower with a carillon — based on one at the University of North Carolina, Loudermilk's alma mater — and lots of chairs and tables on a sprawling stone patio. After the jump, check out more pictures of the park in all its brand-new glory. Bravo, Buckhead.
