Sandy Springs Park presents "Touching" art display

Posted: Updated:
SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -
For many area students and teachers, school starts next week.  So this week on Good Day Atlanta, we're checking out "cool" spots to enjoy those last few days of summer.
 
First up is the brand-new Abernathy Greenway Linear Park in Sandy Springs.  The park just opened on July 17th, and runs for more than six acres alongside Abernathy Road.  The story behind the park involves the widening of Abernathy -- planners promised the linear park to neighbors during discussions of the road project.  Now, the park includes gardens, lighted trails, and a plaza.  Best of all, there are six
"playable art" features -- giant sculptures created by artists around the country that kids can climb on as much as they want!
 
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken loves any excuse to go play -- and decided to check out the park.  Click the video above to see it for yourself!
