Klyde Warren Park’s president steps down
Park board members will start looking for a president in the coming months.
He says as a farewell: “Most people get one opportunity to be a part of a game-changing project like Klyde Warren Park,” he says. “Including my tenure at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, I have had two. I am so proud to have helped contribute to the final project and to the public response Klyde Warren Park has received. Special thanks to the Woodall Rogers Park Foundation for the opportunity to play a small part in this amazing project.”
The park was built over Woodall Rodgers on five acres of land. The green space is meant to connect Uptown and Downtown, and in its short time open so far, it's attracted healthy crowds and regular food truck business. Pegasus News called the park "beautiful and functional" in a story about the 5 things you must see at Klyde Warren Park.
A reason was not given for Banta's quick departure. Park officials will begin looking for a new president soon. Until then, Chairman Jody Grant will take over most of the duties. Banta will consult on additional Klyde Warren Park projects.Follow @sblaskovich
