Southwest Connector Trail Groundbreaking
Atlanta BeltLine's Southwest Connector Trail set to break ground
Phase I is beginning of a 4.5-mile trail
The Southwest Connector Trail is a PATH Foundation-led project that will ultimately connect to the Atlanta BeltLine through the Westview neighborhood in southwest Atlanta as part of the 33-mile network of paved trails. The trail winds through a serene stretch of woods, originating at the existing Lionel Hampton Trail, passing by Beecher Hills Elementary School, and emerging onto Westwood Avenue. When complete, this trail will run 4.5 miles. Phase I of this project along with the Eastside Trail, the West End Trail and the Northside Trail will bring the total of permanent trails to nearly seven miles along and near the corridor.
Please join the Atlanta BeltLine on January 12, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. at Beecher Hills Elementary School for the groundbreaking! Parking is available in the school parking lot of the elementary school and along Bollingbrook Drive. The ceremony will take place behind the school on the playing fields. Volunteers will be on-hand to show you the way. There is an option to walk down a gravel path that runs alongside the trail or walk down a sidewalk to the field.
