A 1-acre extension of Sandy Springs’ Abernathy Greenway Park is in the early planning stages, and the city is seeking community input on what it should include.
The parcel, at the northeast corner of the Abernathy and Wright Road intersection, was originally slated as parking, but residents complained about that. The city held a Jan. 20 meeting where, according to a press release, community suggestions leaned toward passive use with landscaping, water features and shade structures. The meeting did not appear on the city calendar for unclear reasons.
There is no budget or timeline for the new parkland yet. The community input deadline is Feb. 12, and suggestions can be emailed to DCoffer@sandyspringsga.gov.
