Pedestrian Access to Piedmont Park from the Atlanta BeltLine
posted in Access Points, Construction Updates, Parks // 06/14/13

The Piedmont Park Conservancy, working with Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., recently removed a stretch of fence along Evelyn Street in order to allow easier pedestrian access into the park from the interim hiking trail. While this section of the park at the northern end of the dog park has paved trails, they were disconnected from the Atlanta BeltLine by a gated fence. With the gate removed, the Piedmont Park Conservancy paved a short connector trail from the existing path to the Atlanta BeltLine, allowing pedestrians and cyclists a direct connection to Piedmont Park.

This access is a significant step towards connecting Piedmont Park’s new Woodland Gardens opening in summer 2013 and the main park via the Atlanta BeltLine. This new access point is in addition to the fence that was removed several weeks along that ran between the interim hiking trail and the dog park.

Evelyn Street is used to access the parking deck off of Monroe Drive that is shared by Atlanta Botanical Garden and Piedmont Park.  A crosswalk installed earlier this spring enables Atlanta BeltLine trail users to navigate Evelyn with safer and easier access between the trails and the park.
