The Chattahoochee River is a shared historic, economic, cultural, and ecological resource of extraordinary value for Metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia, but the lack of access to the waterway means that it is also an undervalued amenity and unrealized opportunity for the Atlanta region.
But it’s in our power to change that! The Chattahoochee RiverLands Vision, released in 2020, shows how we can create a linear network of greenways, blueways, parks, and destinations that bring people to the water’s edge, promote stewardship and conservation of the river and reveal the subtle magic of the Chattahoochee to all.
The study proposes the design and creation of:
a continuous 100-mile park from Buford Dam to Chattahoochee Bend State Park
up to 44 tributary trails connecting neighborhoods and cities to the river via 25 trailheads
more than 100 miles of water trails with 43 water access points
ecological restoration sites that reduce habitat fragmentation
