The CPC Takes Giant Step In Walk Chastain Project Featured

Great News! We’ve just received our permit from the City of Atlanta to begin construction on our Walk Chastain project, which will make the Powers Ferry portion of the path wider and safer.

This project, along with Play Chastain, is part of the Conservancy's $5.2 million capital campaign. The PATH Foundation, which will manage the construction of the project, is preparing to start the contractor selection process and hopes to break ground in early 2015. Walk Chastain enhancements include widening the path from 4 foot to 10-12 feet, increasing the safety buffer from cars to 4 foot plus, installing granite curbs and a guardrail, and improving crosswalk intersections.

Thanks to all who #lovechastain and have donated to this crucial improvement for our most valued green space. If you'd like to donate to Walk Chastain, please click here.
