So, what is happening in the meadow at Piedmont Park?

If you’ve passed by the meadow by Park Tavern in Piedmont Park lately, you’ve been greeted with bulldozers, steamrollers and basically a big old mess. So what exactly is going on there, and when will you be able to access the area again?

We reached out to the city of Atlanta’s watershed management department for the details, and they tell us that it’s a stormwater pipe that needed fixing. A contractor has been working on the pipe for the last couple of weeks and now the Department of Parks and Recreation is taking over for remediation.

We’re told they are shooting to be done by the end of the month, so feel free to go forth and frolic after that you crazy kids.
