The Stitch has the opportunity to establish a green heart for Atlanta in Downtown. Located in an area where there is an urgent need for parks and open space, the Stitch can increase tree canopy coverage, restore ecological systems, and improve quality of life for local residents and visitors. Acting as the missing link between existing urban destinations, the Stitch can offer a signature public open space that offers a range of park programming and landscape experiences, creating a welcoming and inclusive amenity for all.
