Work to spruce up  Mountain Way Common continues.

A new pedestrian bridge was installed recently in Buckhead’s new greenspace and volunteers are scheduled in August to add a rock staircase, remove invasive plants and clean up the park’s trails.

Park Pride, a nonprofit that supports metro Atlanta parks, has scheduled a volunteer work day at Mountain Way Commons for Aug. 8, the organization said July 15.

The work day is one of three scheduled for local parks in August; the others are at Constitution Lakes Park in DeKalb on Aug. 22 and Zonolite Park in DeKalb on Aug. 29.

“These projects are an exciting way for us to engage directly with individuals and introduce them to Park Pride’s volunteer program and three amazing but little-known greenspaces,” said Park Pride Volunteer Manager John Ahern.

Here’s a video from the North Buckhead Civic Association showing the installation of the bridge:
