Mountain Way Common gains woodsy green space along Nancy Creek

Underneath the hulking concrete viaduct carrying Ga. Highway 400 over a Buckhead ravine, there’s a natural oasis that seems far removed from the city.

Mountain Way Common, along the shores of Nancy Creek, has long been a favorite in the neighborhood, and with the construction of PATH400, the park will serve many more people.

And now, the green space is slated to expand, thanks to a donation of more than a half-acre of adjacent land.

Livable Buckhead and Friends of Mountain Way Common announced that Mid Broadwell Partnership has given a plot of land at the corner of North Ivy Road and Mountain Drive for the addition of amenities to the park.

While specifics for the space have yet to be ironed out, a 2012 conceptual plan identifies the parcel for use as a playground, plus space for gathering and eating, with restroom facilities.

According to Livable Buckhead, the expansion of Mountain Way Common is the latest acquisition in pursuit of the Buckhead Collection’s goal of securing 106 acres of additional green space.

In the past seven years, officials say they’ve added 34 acres of green space to Buckhead.
