This Priority-1 acquired Greenway Property is located
on Peachtree Creek in a residential area in northwest Atlanta, near
several other properties protected by the Greenway Acquisition Project.
This property is located in a densely developed area of the City
of Atlanta. In densely developed areas, a large amount of storm
water run-off flows from surrounding impervious surfaces into nearby
creeks and waterways. For this reason, Peachtree Creek is especially
vulnerable to pollution and sediment washing into the creek from
surrounding development. Protecting properties on both sides of
Peachtree Creek or continuously along the creek is also especially
desirable from an ecological standpoint. A connected corridor of
greenspace creates a more suitable habitat for plants and animals
and as well as enhancing the water quality of the stream.
