Bagley Park name restored Frankie Allen Park Buckhead

Bagley Park is a monument to Buckhead’s historic Black communities—and a reminder of the racism that drove them out

In 1980, Bagely Park was renamed as Frankie Allen Park for a beloved Buckhead Baseball umpire. No one told the family of William Bagely, a leader in the Black community that lived on and was ultimately forced out of the land where the park stands. Last year, Bagley's granddaughter Elon Osby and the Buckhead Heritage Society helped restore Bagley's name to the park and remind residents of the area's history.
