Lindsay Street Park In Atlanta: A Park With Purpose

The Conservation Fund has been working for more than a decade to establish parks and green space in Atlanta. As part of our effort, we’re working with local partners in the Proctor North Avenue section of the city, stretching from the Georgia World Congress Center and Georgia Dome to the Atlanta Beltline. The Proctor North Avenue area, which includes the English Avenue and Vine City neighborhoods, lies in the shadow of downtown Atlanta, less than a mile from the Georgia Dome and the site where the Atlanta Falcons football team will build its new $1 billion stadium. Yet these streets are not the lifeline to Atlanta; they are plagued with some of the highest rates of crime, unemployment and foreclosure in the city.
