Tattnall Square Park, Macon, GA, 31207
The Tattnall Park Bear was created by Macon artist Connie Redd and was inspired by Tattnall Square Park and the skyline of Mercer University which borders the park. Located directly across the street from Mercer's campus, this bear signifies the important role that Mercer has played as a community partner in Macon and Bibb County . The College Hill Corridor project, which is responsible for the Knight Neighborhood Challege grants which funded the bear trail project, was conceived by Mercer students as a class project. Since the project's master plan was created and approved, the corridor has brought more than $5 million in private funding into the corridor to be used for revitalization and community improvement efforts.
