Abernathy Greenway

       Abernathy Greenway Northside opened in the summer of 2014.  In 2016, the Southside will be complete to form 20+ acres in the Sandy Springs park system. This linear park stretching alongside Abernathy Road creates a valuable amenity to the surrounding neighborhoods as a local meeting spot for many families.  The Abernathy Greenway is a statement of elegance with signature “rooms” that enhance natural beauty, and areas where people can interact to foster a heightened sense of community in Sandy Springs.
