T
his vacant greenway property was ideal for acquisition by the City of Atlanta. The property is located in a residential area adjacent to Interstate 75/85 on Joyland Place in south Atlanta, at the headwaters, or the "source" of the South River. This tributary to the South River forms the eastern and northern boundaries of the property, of which 1,200 feet of stream are protected under the acquisition. Almost half (3 acres) of the 7-acre property is located within the 100-year floodplain zone. Protected by the Greenway Acquisition Project, thick vegetation in the undeveloped property "filters" sediments and pollutants from storm water runoff from the Interstate and nearby residential areas, which could otherwise be harmful to the South River ecosystem.
