Greenville Street Park

The Greenville Street Park is a two acre "first class" urban park nestled between Greenville Street, LaGrange Street, and Salbide Avenue. Strategically placed on the edge of the historic Greenville/LaGrange residential neighborhood and its commercial district, the park is within walking distance of historic downtown Newnan. The urban type "hardscapes" park was designed as a first class gathering place for downtown patrons, lunch time crowds, afternoon and evening musical concerts, and other festive events.

The park features a 25 column colonnaded entrance, a terraced lawn area and stage that serves as a small amphitheater, a water fountain, brick plazas, a covered pavilion, and plenty of tables and chairs. Meandering paths, secluded benches, and extensive landscaping compose the balance of the new park. The Greenville Street Park also features two sculptures, one by prominent Atlanta artist, Martin Dawe, and the other by local renowned artist, Carol Harless. This park was 46% funded by SPLOST 2002 and the remaining costs was funded through Impact Fees. The park was constructed in 2009.
