ABOUT "PLAY CHASTAIN" -
The Chastain Park community is building a world-class multi acre natural playground right in the heart of Metro Atlanta. Creating such an innovative space to serve thousands of children of all interests and abilities is a Herculean task. Play is good for children. PLAY = healthy bodies, healthy minds, healthy social interaction, healthy ability to assess risk, healthy imaginations, healthy curiosity, big dreams, healthy respect for the earth, active engagement in the community.... and, it's a whole lot of fun.
There is ample room for play at Chastain Park, but the current playground is very small and outdated. The Master Plan calls for an expanded playground to serve older children, but there are other needs that should be met such as a playground that is accessible to all children. Currently North Atlanta is a "play desert" that has only a few small public playgrounds to serve thousands of children. The PLAY CHASTAIN playground will serve children of all abilities and will also include a a toddler space, a handicapped accessible tree house and areas for children with autism.
