About This Project
  • What does it take to transform a river corridor from endangered to exemplary? Spanning 100 miles from Buford Dam north of Atlanta to Chattahoochee Bend State Park, the Chattahoochee RiverLands is a network of greenways, a blueway (the river itself), tributary trails, and parks—all working together to connect people to the outdoors. When completed, it will link 19 cities and seven counties and include 42 water access points and eight campsites. No wonder it’s on track to be Atlanta’s—and Georgia’s—defining public space for generations to come.

    But this project isn’t special just because it is massive and transformative.

    This stretch of river is profoundly important as an everyday joy to those who helped shape it—and those who will enjoy it for years to come. It is through their eyes and experiences that the project’s scope and impact are best conveyed. These are a few of their stories and the outcomes they illustrate.

  • The Chattahoochee RiverLands Greenway Study was managed by a joint Project Management Team (PMT) consisting of the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), Trust for Public Land (TPL), Cobb County, and the City of Atlanta. The project was designed in collaboration with the Chattahoochee Working Group (CWG), a collection of stakeholders, residents, and political officials working
    within the study area.
