A groundbreaking ceremony will be held for the Abernathy Linear Park on April 25, from 2 to 4 p.m.

The linear park should be built along Abernathy Road from its intersection with Wright Road to its intersection with Brandon Mill Road. The park will feature a plaza, patio, gardens, lighted trails and playgrounds, according to the city of Sandy Springs Web site.

At the same time as the linear park is being developed, the Georgia Department of Transportation will be widening Abernathy Road.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held near the corner of Abernathy and Wright roads. Parking will be in the parking lot of the old Sports Authority at the corner of Roswell and Abernathy roads.
