Ever wondered why you drive on a parkway + park on a driveway? We don’t have the answer, and since Patten Parkway is now known as Patten Square, we don’t need it.
The historic square that was formerly home to the first Coca-Cola bottling facility has undergone major renovations in the past 2 years in order to become more pedestrian friendly + better suited for events.
Wondering what Patten Square has to offer ahead of its official grand opening ceremony on July 23? We’re breaking down what’s new.
What’s new here
- A recently-installed sculpture that lights up at night
- Several trees lining the sidewalk
- Wider sidewalk space + removal of the median that previously split the parkway down the middle
- Stone benches that also serve as art
