Construction Has Begun!
Groundbreaking Ceremony September 29, 2014

After nearly two years designing and planning to build a signature structure to provide shade for park visitors, construction has begun! The Astra Group broke ground on this much-anticipated addition to our park on September 29 and construction will be completed by early 2015.

The Conservancy board is grateful to Park Pride, Smith Dalia and other supporters who contributed funds to build this beautiful, shady spot, including:

John Bayne
Fred Yalouris
Daniel Kurzius
Southeast Capital Companies
Markham Smith
ELV & Associates
Georgia Power
Southern Dairies
Robert Marshall
Ponce City Market

Park Pride awarded the Conservancy a $16,000 grant for the installation of a shade structure in the playground area. Smith Dalia Architects provided pro-bono design and site plan creation. Sykes Consulting is providing pro-bono structural engineering services. Meeting rigorous "public space" commercial grade structural standards is costly, and we still need to raise additional funds to complete this project.  

Here's a Preliminary Drawing of the Shade Structure
which is designed to provide optimal shade:
