The site of the former Grant School, now Cabbagetown Park, marked the last option for developing a substantial swath of greenspace within the Cabbagetown neighborhood. After years of wrangling over details, price, and land use with the Atlanta Public School system throughout the late 1990s, the neighborhood association that would become the Cabbagetown Initiative Community Development Corporation eventually succeeded in converting the space into a city park. Today, the 3.5 acres are known for hosting the annual Chomp and Stomp festival among other events throughout the year.
