Community Play Wrapped in a Garden
A playground wrapped by a community garden so kids will feel the safe embrace of nature, family and friends while they play. The inner circle is for play (adventure play, natural play, play equipment). The next loop could be a tricycle path. The next is small garden plots where children learn how to grow their own food. Then the largest loop is the main community garden. Surrounding all of this will be benches, picnic tables and some shade. This beautiful space will be built at the new headquarters of Families First, which is moving back to its original home in Atlanta's struggling Westside. The space is across the street from a MARTA transit station. It will be designed and built by our many partners and an army of volunteers.
