Beautiful City is WABE's series about places to go in Atlanta to get away from Atlanta.
Today we’re heading off to Kirkwood, an East Atlanta neighborhood in between Edgewood and Decatur.
Hidden here is a small patch of nature that, in a way, is just as manmade as the concrete jungle that surrounds it.
The Kirkwood Urban Forest is a combination meadow, community garden, and forest space that used to be something completely different.
Beautiful City is made possible by a grant from The Kendeda Fund, and through a partnership with Park Pride – Celebrating 25 years of More and Better Parks for Atlanta.
And we’d like to hear from you. Where do you go in Atlanta to get away from it all? Why not tell us about it? You can leave your comments at the bottom of the page and who knows your favorite spot might be featured on the next Beautiful City.
