New Year’s Resolutions - a tradition so many would rather do without. I actually look forward to it. Each new year provides an opportunity to reflect on the last 12 months, and resolve to do more of what worked well. As someone who works in the parks and greenspace arena my resolutions always involve thinking about the outdoors. There is no shortage of research from organizations such as the CDC and the Trust for Public Land or periodicals like Fast Company who list the benefits of spending active time outdoors. These reports come filled with esoteric terms such as “forest bathing”, “garden therapy” and “nature deficit disorder”. The list of benefits is long, offering improved health, mental wellbeing, longevity and my personal favorite from the CDC, “a favorable distribution of body fat”. The truth is, time spent outside is not only good for you but it is fun!

 

 

Thank you for your continued patience as The Chastain Park Conservancy, The PATH Foundation, and the City of Atlanta expand the PATH on Powers Ferry Road. We understand the Chastain Community, and particularly the neighbors immediately adjacent to the construction site, have been greatly impacted by the construction process. We apologize for the inconvenience during construction and continue to coordinate with all the varied parties associated with this construction project to ensure Walk Chastain remains on schedule and is completed safely.
