Description:
Elevated view of the renovation of Central City Park (later known as Woodruff Park) in the Five Points area of downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
Central City Park, a 1.7-acre tract of land bordered by Peachtree Street, Auburn Avenue, Pryor Street (now Park Place), and Edgewood Avenue in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, was dedicated in 1973. In 1971, an anonymous donor had given the city $9,000,000 for the purchase and development of the land. It was later revealed that Robert W. Woodruff had donated the funds for the park and it was renamed in his honor in 1985.
