The story of Macedonia Park (later called Bagley Park, and today renamed Frankie Allen Park), is vital to understanding how institutional and structural racism works and what the long-term effects are. On the heels of the Inman Park story, it highlights the dichotomy of life in Atlanta for those who were not white and not rich.

Today, hundreds of Buckhead residents visit this public park space, but few understand what was done to create it.
