Woodruff Park

 

Atlanta's six-acre Woodruff Park is one of downtown's most stellar green spaces and is located in the heart of its commercial, academic and entertainment districts. In promotion of enhanced sustained downtown activity, this plan proposes a weekend flea market as a regular, colorful, celebratory event appealing to downtown denizens, visitors to the city as well as residents of the metropolitan area. Planned as an outdoor menagerie of artists, retail vendors, local foodstuffs, crafts, leather goods, and jewelry stands next to fresh fruit and vegetable stands interspersed with areas for street performances, the market will add an immensely enjoyable dimension the center city now lacks.
