Freedom Park

"Freedom Park is one of the largest parks in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
In the 1960s, the Georgia Department of Transportation began acquiring land for two east-side highways. One would cut north from I-20 through Virginia-Highland creating an interchange at I-85 connecting with what is now Georgia 400, the other would run east from the downtown connector to Stone Mountain (part of this is Freedom Parkway). A cloverleaf interchange for the two was to be atop the prominant Copenhill where the Carter Center now stands. Through sales and eminent domain, the GDOT assembled much of the central portion of the needed land and tore down 500 homes when local protests stopped the project in the 1970s. That land sat vacant for more than 20 years when the city of Atlanta began the process of turning it into a park with the help of PATH. The 207 acre Freedom Park was officially dedicated on September 19, 2000 with ribbon cutters Jimmy Carter, Roy Barnes and Bill Campbell. Since then it has hosted a number of outdoor sculpture displays and is a popular jogging, bike riding and dog-walking park."

The two major roads you see here is the beginning of Freedom Parkway intersecting Moreland Avenue. Just above this, you can see the Bank of America Plaza in the distance, one of Atlanta's most recognizable skyscrapers.
