ALERT

STAY AWAY FROM THE WEST END OF DEEPDENE
The drain at the west end of the forest is completely clogged which has flooded the stream area and trail. There was also a sewer spill at Azalea Park and East Lake that may have contaminated the Deepdene stream. Please stay out of this area until it has been cleaned up. Do not let your kids and dogs walk through this area.
Thank you,
Olmsted Linear Park Alliance

Mission Statement

To protect and preserve Olmsted Linear Park by engaging and educating the public to treasure and invest in the improvement of this historic, landmark asset, and to champion the teaching and legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted in creating thoughtful, well-designed greenspace to enhance urban living.

About Us

The Olmsted Linear Park Alliance (OLPA) is a public-private partnership that was founded in 1997 to implement Frederick Law Olmsted’s original vision for the Olmsted Linear Park through a master plan adopted by the City of Atlanta, DeKalb County and Fernbank, Inc. Through a series of capital campaigns, OLPA raised more than $10 million to ensure the restoration and preservation of the Park. Now, all six segments of the park — Springdale, Virgilee, Oak Grove, Shadyside, Dellwood, and Deepdene have been rehabilitated for everyone to enjoy. Children ride their bikes, exercise enthusiasts run along the paved pathways and dogs and their owners enjoy a leisurely stroll through the old-growth forest. This historic Olmsted Linear Park allows visitors from all walks of life to enjoy the tranquility of an urban oasis in the heart of Atlanta and the Druid Hills community.
