The community built green space, Boulevard Woods Park is in nearing its final stages ! The project which has been in the works since 2009 has been a tremendous effort started informally by Athenians living in the historic Boulevard neighborhood looking to address the need for an in-town park. Since then, it has been headed by the Boulevard Neighborhood Association, Inc., partnered with the Athens Land Trust and made great gains with funding from local foundations. However, the goals of the project maintain their grass-roots ideals: to recruit local volunteers to build a beautiful and safe park out of natural resources.
The park will feature several lawns, seating areas, bike racks, a preserved tree canopy, designed entryway, and community mural.
We here at Full Circle are truly excited by the progress of the Boulevard Woods Park and feel that the effort provides a incredible highlight to what makes our community so great! Please read more about the project and stay up to date, visit there website at: http://boulevardwoods.org/
