Healthy Community Recreation
Located in the Gateway area across from the Bankhead MARTA Station, Proctor Park will deliver a quarter-mile trail and bridge over the creek that will connect the surrounding community to transit, the Atlanta BeltLine and the Proctor Creek Greenway. The Park will install healthy community fitness and recreation opportunities and attractive and safe green spaces where families and friends can gather. The Foundation is partnering with the City of Atlanta, the National Park Service, and other funders to complete the construction of Proctor Park. The first phase of design, planning and community outreach will commence in 2016. The second phase of Proctor Park's construction will include the construction of four acres of wetlands and natural systems that will be accessible via a system of boardwalks with viewing areas and interpretive signage.
