Historic Fourth Ward Park Featured in Landscape Architect
Atlanta's Historic Fourth Ward Park, an HDR project, is featured on the cover and in a nine-page feature article in the March 2013 issue of Landscape Architect magazine.
HDR designed the first phase of the 17-acre park that has been transformed from a barren, contaminated site into a vision for sustainable development. Flood protection and stormwater overflow solutions are disguised through artistic park features celebrating water. Economic redevelopment has been jump-started by additional park amenities, such as flowing walkways and a city greensward; a splash pad and playground; a recirculating stream and wild flower meadows; a multipurpose recreation field and Atlanta's first skate park.
