Green Space

Downtown Atlanta is a great place to be outdoors. Get outside, breathe in some fresh air, and enjoy one of our green spaces. 

Downtown Yoga

Join Central Atlanta Progress for free yoga in Woodruff Park. You’ll just need a mat or towel and water. Enjoy the fabulous spring weather and get a workout in at the same time! Woodruff Park is accessible by multiple forms of alternative transportation--biking, walking, or public transportation (MARTA or the Atlanta Streetcar). If alternative transportation isn’t an option for you, information on parking can be found here http://www.atlantadowntown.com/guide/getting-around/parking

Woodruff Park 

Today, through a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) maintains stewardship of Woodruff Park. ADID is responsible for the park’s daily upkeep and programming, as well as implementing and securing funding for future development. Woodruff Park is just one of the great green spaces Downtown.

Daffodil Project

Central Atlanta Progress, in conjunction with Am Yisrael Chai!, has launched the Downtown Daffodil Project in support of the worldwide Daffodil Project.

The Downtown Daffodil Project contributes to the worldwide effort by creating a “ribbon of consciousness” between the Center for Civil and Human Rights and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. In an effort to kick start the Downtown vision, 20,000 daffodils were planted in 2014 in Woodruff Park, the city’s historic center.  In 2015, an additional 90,000 daffodils will be planted throughout Downtown Atlanta that will result in a total of 110,000 daffodils in bloom throughout Downtown in early spring of next year.
