Ruthie McLeod and Mayor Jen Cavanaugh cut the ribbon as Cathy Glazier and Karen Sullivan of the Piedmont Beautification Foundation look on.

Local elected officials, city staff, Piedmont Beautification Foundation members, and the family of Denny McLeod celebrated the completion of the Highland-Guildford steps project at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday evening.

The city recently completed renovations of the steps, transforming what had been originally envisioned as an informal pedestrian pathway into a grand entrance to the Piedmont Park Cherry Walk and Tea House. After being closed for construction since December, the steps re-opened on June 2.

The ribbon cutting was followed by a reception recognizing outgoing city volunteers from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at Community Hall. (Exedra photos to come Friday.)

  1. This project turned out well. It would be wonderful if we could next turn our attention to the large area behind the pre-school just above the pathway. It is used for weddings, is badly in need of renovation, and would greatly enhance the beauty and funcaltiy of the area.
