Park Pride is excited about the Atlanta BeltLine.
The BeltLine is a largely abandoned and underutilized rail corridor that circles downtown Atlanta through many of Atlanta historic in-town neighborhoods. Park Pride sees the potential of the BeltLine to:
- serve as a linear park in the heart of Atlanta
- connect existing greenspaces such as Washington Park, Maddox Park, Perkerson Park, Grant Park, Freedom Park and Piedmont Park, and
- serve as a catalyst for the creation of new parks along its length.
Park Pride works with BeltLine Partnership, BeltLine Network and others to promote strong public support for the BeltLine through education and outreach.
The BeltLine is a three-legged stool, based on parkland, transportation and development. View more details about bringing the BeltLine to fruition, plus read the eight guiding principles that Park Pride has endorsed regarding the BeltLine.
