The Teague property acquisition is the first on Sweetwater
Creek, and represents an exciting beginning for this stream segment.
This acquisition is comprised of over 23 acres of property now protected
by the Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project. The vegetation on the
property is comprised of large hardwood trees and several wetland
areas. The curvature of Sweetwater Creek also results in an exceptional
amount of stream frontage which will be protected. As the Metropolitan
Atlanta region continues to grow, the surrounding areas continue
to experience development pressure. This acquisition is an example
of how the City of Atlanta can protect greenspace and create green
buffer areas along streams before the adjacent land is developed.
