Parks and Gardens

A thousand trees and several thousand of other plants, flowers, and shrubs have been planted throughout the Glenwood Park neighborhood - creating shade, comfort, and beauty for its residents while also absorbing thousands of gallons of stormwater and significantly reducing heat island effects. No trees existed on site at the start of development by Green Street Properties in 2003.

Our community harvests approximately 35,000 gallons of water per week of well water for irrigating its central parks and street trees thus avoiding any use of potable water from the City of Atlanta for its drought-resistant-landscaping – 1.82 million gallons per year! The balance of the community’s landscaping is xeriscaped and uses no irrigation water at all.
