Greenville Street- The park features a 25 column colonnaded entrance, a terraced lawn area and stage that serves as a small amphitheater, a water fountain, brick plazas, a covered pavilion, and plenty of tables and chairs. Meandering paths, secluded benches, and extensive landscaping compose the balance of the new park. Greenville Street Park also features two sculptures, one by prominent Atlanta artist, Martin Dawe, and the other by local renowned artist, Carol Harless. For more information on sculptor Martin Dawe, please visit http://www.cherrylion.com/.

The second sculpture is by internationally renowned artist Carol Harless. Lady of the House" represents the "joy and exuberance of a young woman celebrating her architectural legacy." This joyful woman dances in a dress while holding a piece of barge board -- decorative millwork used on many Victorian-era cottages -- overhead. The barge board is significant to Harless because it's rumored that no two barge boards in Newnan's historic districts are alike. Much of the barge board trim in Newnan was made by R.D. Cole Manufacturing Co., which later became Brown Steel and Caldwell Tank. In the 1800s R.D. Cole produced fine millwork before the company went into the manufacture of steel tanks. The company also built the 1904 Coweta County Courthouse.
