Help transform a deteriorating public space to create a welcoming gathering space for those of all ages and economic statuses.
The Coweta Street Park initiative will transform an existing public space within the city of Senoia, creating an innovative, welcoming, and accessible green space for those of all ages and economic statuses.
The existing park is sparse and deteriorating. This public-private community-wide initiative will create a healthy, vibrant green space revitalizing the North side of Senoia, expanding access to multi-generational families, children with disabilities, and the entire community.

The vast majority of the funds to be raised supporting this initiative will come from private sources. The park will be open to the entire community. All other funds necessary to complete the park project will come from either cash donations or in-kind donations of needed goods and services.
The park fundraising committee is seeking the involvement and support of local businesses, corporations, and foundations. The Senoia Housing Authority, AMC, Coweta-Fayette EMC, Historical Concepts, Integrated Science and Engineering as well as other local businesses have already invested in the Coweta Street Park initiative.
Our local community is an equally important pillar in the success of this project. Citizens, churches, and civic organizations are the beating heart of Senoia and can be a driving force in bringing this project to reality.
Every dollar donated, every hour of in-kind services provided, and every ounce of
materials provided on an in-kind basis will go towards the completion of this
initiative. All efforts of the Park Steering Committee and Fundraising Committee are on a volunteer basis.
Donations are being made to the Coweta Community Foundation (CCF) and earmarked for the Coweta Street Park Project. CCF is a well-established 501(c)( 3) in Coweta County Georgia

The Coweta Street Park Initiative is made possible through the generous support of businesses, community organizations, and especially, families and individuals. Individual contributions, no matter how big or small, are invaluable in helping to kick-start this important project. The response from the community thus far has been truly inspiring, and we are grateful for everyone who has joined us in this effort.
But we need your continued support to ensure the success of the Coweta Street Park Initiative. By purchasing a permanent brick for the park's walkway, you can show your commitment to improving our community and leave a lasting legacy for future generations. Donations between $250-$999 can have a personalized brick (three lines up to 24 characters per line) added to the Park’s walkway. Donations of $1,000 and above can have a larger personalized brick. Each and every individual contribution is crucial to the success of this initiative, and we thank you for your generosity and support.

Yes, as we enter the construction phase for the park, the park committee will be actively recruiting volunteers for many activities. We also welcome and and are grateful for in-kind donations of goods and services related to the park, including landscaping materials and services, park benches and tables, and so much more.
In simple terms, the city simply doesn’t have the budget for this type of initiative at this time. The park committee believes there is more than ample interest from local corporations, businesses and area residents to secure the funding necessary to complete the park. There has already been nearly $200K of cash and in-kind services donated, secured or committed, putting us well on the way towards securing enough funds to complete at least phase one of the park. Although the city won’t be paying for the park per se, the city will be providing maintenance and ongoing support for the park once completed, and has gone to great lengths to ensure that already planned and budgeted modifications to Coweta Street will greatly complement and enhance the design and layout of the proposed park.
There will be parking for cars and golf carts.
Although located in the Senoia housing authority area, the park will serve all residents of Senoia, it is a community wide public space.
Seavy Street park has limited facilities for our residents with accessibility needs and is too far from the areas of the city where those residents reside.
We hope to have phase one of the project completed by the end of 2023.
Once we secure funding for phase one of the project, we would plan to initiate construction. We plan for this to be sometime mid-late 2023.
There will be various corporate sponsor, community partner and family/individual donor levels, all which will be detailed at cowetastreetpark.org#be-the-difference
