Located on a prominent high point in the Summerhill community, Heritage Park overlooks the surrounding neighborhood, downtown Atlanta, and Turner Field (the former Olympic Stadium). The Park was developed as a passive open space to serve as a gateway into Summerhill and the surrounding Greenlea Commons North townhome development. In addition to green space, the park contains a monument to the Summerhill’s founders and its complex history.
