Save Forest in Historic College Park

If we do not take action I am afraid the forest between Princeton Ave. and Temple Ave. in College Park, GA will soon be chopped down and developed. It was a sad day when a lot of old trees were bulldozed for the development of The Pad. Development is good for our community but there are limits and there can be a balance between development and preservation of natural spaces. In fact we have plenty of space for development in College Park besides this forest. Making an area for the community to take a walk and perhaps allow thier dog to enjoy a dog park area would benefit us all. This forest is easy walking distance from The Pad, the MARTA, downtown College Park and the surrounding neighborhood. In the end it would be an investment that would pay itself off through the benefit to the surrounding community.
Right now, as the photos on the FaceBook link below show it is full of trash. Take a walk in the forest as we did. Use your imagination! It does not take much to appreciate the area, the stream that runs through it, the birds and the big old trees.
Hapeville made a nice park in an old forested area near their library. I think that sets a good example of what we could do in College Park.
