Top Ten Ways To Use PATH400

Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, gives us the dirt on PATH400 progress.

herb-path400-smTop Ten Ways To Use PATH400:

  • To get to work – A lot people who live in Brookhaven or Buckhead could use PATH400 to get to work if they also work in this area. A great example – Herb Silver, who lives in North Buckhead and rides to his Sensible Wellness clinic in the Buckhead Village. Be like Herb!
  • Take your meetings to a new creative level – Get the creative juices flowing by taking your meeting outside. A walk along PATH400 provides an excellent change of scenery which is proven to result in more creative thought and is sure to make your meeting more productive while you log those steps.
  • At lunch – We all know we sit too much during the day and our butts are getting bigger as a result! Use the time at lunch to start a walking club or just get out by yourself with those headphones, Spotify and a little 80’s music to get you moving.

Bike Share in Buckhead

Guest Column by Abby Kingsley

As someone who grew up riding bikes and commutes to Buckhead every day for my summer internship, I was intrigued to hear that Relay BikeShare was starting a program in Buckhead. I loved how the program provides a quick, convenient, and eco-friendly alternative to driving. My personal commute consists of taking MARTA and walking to work. And now, by simply downloading an app, I am able to hop on a bike and go wherever I please without sacrificing my routine.

Bike Share comes to Buckhead

Guest column by Anna Sharp

ALS_PHOTO-smOne of my favorite parts of Atlanta over the last few years is really seeing the connectivity in this city grow exponentially. With the introduction of new trails like PATH400 it feels like Atlanta is finally coming out of its weird adolescent years.

The addition of the Relay Bike Share is an added bonus on utilizing the new-found connectivity of the city. Relay Bike Share is a citywide bike share program. Chances are you may have spotted around town already, they are the very hip new baby blue bikes and they are now coming to Buckhead! Three new bike share stations will be popping up this month at; the Lenox and Buckhead MARTA stations (hitting the yellow and red line), as well as the Piedmont Center office park, which really helps link an almost suburban office park to the heart of Buckhead.

PATH400 Construction Update – August 2016

The PATH400 theme for this month is “INSTANT ” – blink an eye and you will miss the cool things about to happen!

INSTANT Landscape – Thanks to Atlanta Public Schools (APS), we will have hundreds of trees arriving in the fall between Old Ivy and Wieuca! A c60db288-bsignature feature of the Atlanta Tree Protection Ordinance is “recompense,” the purpose of which is to recoup some of the lost public value that occurs in the destruction of trees. In this case, recompense will be satisfied by the “in-kind” planting of replacement trees. APS needed to recompense for construction and PATH400 needed trees. A win for both parties.

Help Us Show that Parks RULE, Cars DROOL on PARK(ing) Day

da93a96d-2If Buckhead had a birthstone it would be concrete. Our paved paradise has some of Atlanta’s best high rises, restaurants and shopping, but our parks game is weak. Livable Buckhead is working on that…and we need your help.

It’s not news that walking is healthy and people who walk or otherwise exercise regularly tend to be more calm, alert and happy than people who are inactive. To combat afternoon slumps in enthusiasm and focus, take a walk during the lunch hour.
