This Priority-1 acquired Greenway Property is located
in a residential area in northwest Atlanta, near several other properties
protected by the Greenway Acquisition Project. Protecting properties
on both sides of Peachtree Creek or continuously along the creek
is especially desirable from an ecological standpoint. The connected
corridor of greenspace creates a more suitable habitat for plants
and animals and enhances water quality of the stream. Vegetation
in the protected stream corridor and floodplain aids in the filtration
of pollutants from stormwater, and helps prevent flooding downstream.
This acquisition is an ideal example of how a neighborhood can work
together to protect water quality in their community.
