Ecology of the Urban Forest: Historic Fourth Ward Park Walking Tour
In an area that was a paved parking lot, today’s Historic Fourth Ward Park has a 2-acre lake with specially selected native trees and plants that mitigate stormwater runoff while reducing the need for irrigation and chemicals. Join Trees Atlanta and Kevin Burke, Senior Landscape Architect of the Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., for a tour of Historic Fourth Ward Park that will reveal how this remarkable greenspace promotes the ecological health of Atlanta’s urban ecosystem.
- Tour begins at the north end of the Clear Creek basin.
Special thanks to the City of Atlanta for help supporting the Trees Atlanta tree tours!
