Brownwood Park Updates

The East Atlanta Community Association is working on some ongoing issues in Brownwood Park. Through the Parks and Greenspace Committee, chaired by Alex Levy and Jay Kirkland, EACA has initiated contact with the appropriate city of Atlanta departments as well as partner organizations with respect to meeting several maintenance needs in Brownwood Park, to include operational security lights, paved pathway repair, and tree health and hazard inspections.  We received commitments of service orders to address these items and communicate results to EACA.  Per the city, these inspections can take up to 45 days to conclude, and we will update the community as items are addressed. 

As of October 28th all security lighting in both the north and south sections of Brownwood Park are repaired and 100% operational according to City of Atlanta Office of Parks Electrical Supervisor, Charles Hutchinson. We will continue to update the community as we learn more. 

In addition, on Saturday November 11, from 9-Noon, EACA will be partnering with Trees Atlanta to manage the ongoing invasion of non-native weeds, like ivy, honeysuckle, and privet. We will also plant a few new trees to replace those taken by recent storms, like Irma. Spring bulb planting is anticipated along the sunny slope of Ormewood Avenue, while the community garden will get a seasonal sprucing-up for winter gardening .  All neighbors of East Atlanta are encouraged to pitch-in and learn more about our community's largest public greenspace.

Contact the Public Spaces committee at parks@eaca.net to get involved. Can't wait to hear from you!
