Coretta’s Global Peace Garden (CGPG) is being developed to celebrate the globally-respected peace work of a GREAT sister in our Global Family - Mrs. Coretta Scott King. This soon-to-be huge garden will beneficently support the global peace legacy of Atlanta. It will promote the concepts that cultivating Peace and enhancing Justice need to be cherished in Dr. King's birthplace, around the USA & world, and in both creative and new perspectives. CGPG will emphatically and unequivocally propel the Global Movement for the Culture of Peace which is supported by over 1000 peace organizations worldwide. The bottom-line is that Mrs. King developed Atlanta's greatest asset more than anyone. We have termed it:
"The Gandhi-King Global Peace Connection"
“Westside Park” (see images in Gallery link) is a proposed park in the City of Atlanta to be located on the site of the former Bellwood Quarry. The city currently proposes that the land be used to create a 351-acre park with a 45-acre lake which would also serve as a TWO+ BILLION gallon drinking water reservoir (Note: we want to scale an additional initiative and have it officially named: "THOREAU PEACE POND" in celebration of Henry David Thoreau's Bicentennial: 1817-2017).
The city's plan is to have this reservoir & park to become an integral part portion of the extensive Belt Line project; i.e. to construct a ring of parks, gardens, trails, and transit surrounding the core of Atlanta. The proposed Westside Park is nearly twice the size of Atlanta's current largest city park, Piedmont Park, and our DREAM is that it eventually grows to become "The World's Largest Peace Garden."
