New Park, Now Under Construction, Would Be Atlanta's Largest
The city of Atlanta broke ground on the Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry, which will become the city's largest park if fully realized.
In total, the park could eventually cover 280 acres and include a 2 billion-gallon reservoir of emergency water supply.
"The project’s first phase will include tidying up the site, completing survey work, addressing quarry access, and, among other things, restoring Grove Park Place, an overgrown residential area abutting the future park," according to an article by Sean Keenan.
Keenan's coverage includes details and renderings of Quarry Yards, which will add 70 acres of mixed-use development nearby.
