A section of PATH400 in North Buckhead was recently designated an Atlanta Audubon Certified Wildlife Habitat as part of a collaborative effort between Atlanta Audubon Society, Livable Buckhead, and the North Buckhead Home and Garden Club. The Atlanta Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary Program encourages both private and public properties to enhance their land for birds and other wildlife by installing native plants and providing food, water, and shelter for birds and other wildlife. The certified section runs between Lenox Road and Old Ivy Road, and was the first completed segment of the trail, opened to the public in January 2015.
Mountain Way Common, a developing park along the banks of Little Nancy Creek in north Buckhead, is kicking off 2018 by adding an important piece of land. Friends of Mountain Way Common and Livable Buckhead have announced that Mid Broadwell Partnership has generously donated a 0.56-acre parcel at the corner of N. Ivy Rd. and Mountain Dr., creating an opportunity to add new features to the park.
“The community has wanted to add this land to Mountain Way Common for years,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, which facilitated the donation. “Its location across the street from the main gateway makes it a perfect place to add a feature that invites people into the park and raises its overall visibility. We are really grateful to Mid Broadwell Partnership for this donation.”
TSPLOST and proposed TIP funding to complete 5.2-mile greenway in Buckhead
ATLANTA – December 18, 2017 – Today, Livable Buckhead announced that it has reached a major milestone in the development of PATH400SM, identifying funding to complete the 5.2-mile greenway in Buckhead. The funding will come from a combination of city and federal sources. Atlanta City Council voted to allot $5 million in TSPLOST funding to the project, while the Atlanta Regional Commission included $7.42 million in its transportation improvement program project list that allocates funding from the Federal Highway Administration. Another $240,000 in Federal Highway funds are slated for design of a PATH400 extension from Loridans Dr. to the Sandy Springs city limit.
Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, gives us the dirt on PATH400 progress.
I have some great news to share with you today – it appears that PATH400 was on Santa’s NICE list this year! How do I know? Well, we just received the best kind of present – the one you never want to return – cold hard cash – and a lot of it!
Just how much cash you might ask? (How rude – didn’t your Mama tell you it isn’t nice to talk about money?) Oh well – let’s be tacky anyway.

PATH400 is going to the dogs!
Great news! After several months of wearing people down with my best squeaky wheel routine, we have received approval from Norfolk Southern to get moving on the next phase, from Miami Circle to the back of Lenox Square. We still have to clear pre-construction meetings with both the railroad and MARTA and then you will see some good old fashioned dirt movin’ going on! We have also received our final approvals to move forward with construction on the Adina section from Lindbergh to Garson. We will build these two at the same time to maximize efficiencies. Read more
Outdoor October – October in Buckhead…the heat of the summer is a memory but the chill of winter is still on the horizon. Warm days, cool evenings make it the perfect time to outside. And for Buckhead getting outside should include getting on PATH400.
