Faces of the Chattahoochee: Keith Sharp of RiverWalk Atlanta

Keith Sharp has long resided in Atlanta’s river-adjacent Riverside community where he and his wife, ‘Riverside Kate,’ developed their love for the Chattahoochee and local advocacy. For the past six years, Keith’s organization called RiverWalk Atlanta has been clearing brush and encouraging Atlanta to discover its “river-side.” The group hopes to be a catalyst for paths, campsites, and boat launches along the river. “RiverWalk’s vision of a five-mile trail is incorporated into the larger Chattahoochee RiverLands project, which aims to connect 100 miles of riverside through greenways and river access,” said Keith. “We’re poised to have a public access point to the trail network open in a year.”
