Atlanta City Council Member Antonio Brown to Co-Host Event Celebrating Improvements to Washington Park Thursday 

ATLANTA — District 3 Council member Antonio Brown will co-host a community event Thursday, Sept. 12 to celebrate upcoming improvements to Washington Park. The celebration will start at 11 a.m. at the Washington Park Natatorium, 102 Ollie Street NW.

“It’s always important that we invest in our parks and work together to benefit the community,” Brown said. “Washington Park is a treasured resource and these improvements will help ensure it remains a vibrant place that we can all enjoy. I look forward to celebrating these upgrades and showcasing the valuable role that parks play in connecting people and bringing our community together.”

This year marks the 100th anniversary of Washington Park, one of the most historic parks in the City. The improvements include upgrades to the natatorium’s WiFi, HVAC system and workout equipment. Thursday’s event will feature remarks from Brown, as well as officials representing Renew Atlanta and the City’s Parks and Recreation Department.
