Burbanck Park dedication will protect property for future generations

A new park has emerged from Emory and the Clifton Community Partnership’s efforts to turn a residential property into green space. The 1.2-acre property at 1164 Clifton Rd. was dedicated as the Drs. Madeline and William Burbanck Park on April 22 by Emory, the CCP, the Druid Hills Civic Association, Peavine Watershed Alliance, Alliance to Improve Emory Village and Park Pride.

“It was a great opportunity for community members from the neighborhoods and Emory to join together on Earth Day and celebrate the dedication of an environmental gem near our campus,” said park committee member David Payne.

In its preserved state, the property will provide an environmentally friendly, aesthetically pleasing transition between the residential homes in Druid Hills and the commercial district in Emory Village.
