After more than ten years of work, Vine City Park is officially complete. Community members, city officials, and Atlanta non-profits gathered Thursday for a ribbon-cutting for final phase of the park, which includes an expanded playground and flood-mitigating features.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said the park, which sits on two flood-prone acres in the heart of Vine City once occupied by abandoned lots and vacant buildings, was a meaningful part of the city’s effort to address blight and infrastructure issues. 

He also said it was a sign of things to come.
