park set to open this month
The new Ground Transportation center, opening this month, is designed to make travel easier for Hartsfield-Jackson’s destination customers. But with the addition of the dog park, the center is also a haven for traveling pets.
Plans for the Ground Transportation center originally included a landscaped area for travelers to enjoy; the idea evolved into a dog park.
“This seemed to be a good step forward to serve our customers traveling with dogs and our customers wanting to enjoy the flowers,” said Kathryn Masters, Airside/Landside area manager and project manager for the dog park.
The fully fenced, 1,000-square-foot area on the south end of the Ground Transportation center contains rock as well as grass, benches, artwork and Mutt Mitts, biodegradable bags for pet waste. Only two dogs are allowed at a time because of the area’s size, but owners can let dogs off leashes.
The Ground Transportation center, at the west end of
the terminal, includes taxicab service, hotel shuttles, parking shuttles,
regional buses and the new ATL SkyTrain to the rental car center.
