Cabbagetown Park

Tools

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.
Cascade Family Skating

Tools

If the neon cascade sign looks familiar, that's because Cascade Family Skating served as a primary shoot location for the 2006 movie ATL, starring a roller-skating T.I. The southwest Atlanta rink follows in the tradition of southwest Atlanta's now-defunct Jellybeans, where the talented teens who congregated there in the late-’80s/early ’90s went on to become such household names as Dallas Austin, Jermaine Dupri, and members of TLC. For the grown folk still down to bounce, rock, and skate, Sunday night is adults only.
Cascade Springs Nature Preserve

Tools

Established in 1979 with city, state and federal funds, the 120-acre woodland and former Creek Indian settlement features steep inclines, a babbling creek, a waterfall, and is home to deer and more than 150 native plant species. It includes an old spring house where tourists once bathed and the remains of a quarry that produced materials to build nearby homes.

Tools

Atlanta’s eighth Landmark District, represents the most complete warehouse district still surviving in the City of Atlanta.
Centennial Olympic Park

Tools

The best thing to come out of the 1996 Olympics is this stately public plaza with dancing fountains, cool light towers, and a variety of spring and summer music series. A redesign of the park is in the works as part of the city's larger re-envisioning of Downtown.

Tools

In addition to standard fare like environmental education, wildlife rehabilitation and camp programs, the nature center also collaborates with groups such as the Chattahoochee Hill Country Alliance to influence smart growth through conservation.
