The design concept for a new park along PATH400 in Buckhead will be unveiled at an Aug. 22 community meeting.

Old Ivy Park, at 519 Old Ivy Road, will be a new 0.7-acre city park. Livable Buckhead, the nonprofit creating PATH400, came up with the idea for the park after deciding to buy a residential property there so the new multiuse trail could make a curve through the area. New trailside parks are part of the PATH400 concept.

A 22-person community advisory committee has been discussing park design details for nearly a year. Livable Buckhead commissioned two alternative designs, and will unveil the chosen concept for public comment and input Aug. 22, 6-8 p.m., at the Sarah Smith Elementary School Intermediate Campus gym, 4141 Wieuca Road. At the meeting, formal presentations will be given at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.
