Charlie Loudermilk Park in the heart of Buckhead Village will get a $2.5 million makeover funded by the Buckhead Community Improvement District and Livable Buckhead, according to a media release.

Banners will be hung around the edges of the park this week illustrating the makeover, which will include a new clock tower, covered seating and a statue of the park’s namesake. Some of the existing trees in the park will be marked for removal in order to plant a new perimeter of oak trees to provide more shade. A grassy lawn panel will be raised 15 inches above Roswell Road, making it completely accessible from Peachtree, Roswell and Sardis roads.
