Colony Square unveils urban park space The Grove

Published: 05/02/19
The Grove's inaugural event was Tres de Mayo, a celebration on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo.

Colony Square opened its new urban park space The Grove on May 3, just in time for summer.

The 10,000-square-foot green space at 14th and Peachtree Streets features 40-foot trees, Spanish Steps and tables and chairs. Colony Square, which is in the midst of a redevelopment spearheaded by owner and developer North American Properties, will host community events in the space throughout the year. 

“We are excited to spend time in Midtown’s newest gathering place,” said Ginny Kennedy, Director of Urban Design at Midtown Alliance. “Not only will The Grove bring people together, it will help deliver on Midtown’s strategy to attract more investment to the district. Midtown Alliance remains focused on ensuring that vibrant public spaces are within an easy walk for everyone. Active public spaces on private property and permanently preserved public parks are not just amenities – they are integral for the exceptional quality of life people expect in Midtown.”
