Explore Atlanta BeltLine Open Parks
The Atlanta BeltLine has already increased the footprint of Atlanta’s greenspace significantly with some of the most sustainable and magnificent parks in the city.
Boulevard Crossing Park
Boulevard Crossing Park Phase I opened in Chosewood Park in fall 2011. Blighted industrial land has been transformed into five acres of glorious greenspace and multi-use activity fields. Built as sustainably as possible, Boulevard Crossing even employed kudzu-eating goats! Learn more
D.H. Stanton Park
Check out the first energy-cost neutral park in the City of Atlanta! Photovoltaic solar panels provide revenue-generating energy, while also serving as a shade structure for park visitors. The park serves as a shining example of the power of a collaborative effort within the community to turn a former landfill site into greenspace for all to enjoy. Learn more
Gordon White Park
With its grand opening in 2008, Gordon White Park became the Atlanta BeltLine’s first official park. This triangle plot of land in a five-star intersection used to be an empty, grassy lot. The Atlanta BeltLine, with its partner the PATH Foundation, revived the park into an open greenspace with winding pathways, landscaped garden beds, and walls and benches for relaxing and taking in the sunshine.

Historic Fourth Ward Park
Historic Fourth Ward Park is perhaps the most visible sign for most Atlantans of the transformative nature of the Atlanta BeltLine. Dedicated in 2011, Historic Fourth Ward Park is a glistening oasis where once stood little more than cracked asphalt, trash-strewn fields, and an empty promise of something more. Learn more
Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark
The arrival of Atlanta’s first public skatepark was greeted with great excitement – with real life skateboard legend Tony Hawk breaking it in. Located alongside the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail, the park offers world-class skateboard amenities as well as a playground and multi-use athletic field. Opened in spring 2011, it has quickly become a hot gathering spot for skaters, athletes and families alike. Learn more
Perkerson Park is a 50-acre gem in southwest Atlanta with everything from a splash pad to an elaborate playground to recreational fields, all under the shady canopy of huge oak trees. Learn more
Explore Atlanta BeltLine Open Trails
Using a 5.5-mile network of paved multi-use trails, the Atlanta BeltLine creates a new public realm offering a pedestrian friendly environment that promotes walking, jogging, biking, and living along the Atlanta BeltLine.
A combination of multi-use trail and linear greenway, the Eastside Trail, now under construction, will be the first finished section of the Atlanta BeltLine trail in the old rail corridor. Funded by a combination of public and private philanthropic sources, the Eastside Trail runs from the tip of Piedmont Park to Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward. Learn more
The Northside Trail through Tanyard Creek Park treats visitors to one of the most scenic stretches of the Atlanta BeltLine. The Northside Trail was the first segment of the Atlanta BeltLine trail to open on the north side of Atlanta, and it serves a connector for two previously existing trails. Learn more
Southwest Connector 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. Learn more
West End Trail
Opened in two phases, the first in October 2008 and the second in June 2010, the West End Trail was the first section of the 33-mile Atlanta BeltLine trail system to be built. It stretches 2.4 miles from White Street to Westview Cemetery, seamlessly connecting several Southwest Atlanta neighborhoods, including historic West End, Mozely Park and Westview. Learn more
Explore Atlanta BeltLine Interim Hiking Trails
The Interim Hiking Trails span roughly seven miles of trails on the east and west sides of the Atlanta BeltLine. There has been no construction in these corridors since the railroads ceased operations. It is truly the Atlanta BeltLine in its natural state. The Interim Hiking Tails have no additional lighting, no pavement and limited points of access.Visitors can enjoy these pleasant retreats at their own risk and are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear or use a bicycle that can handle rough terrain. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is not liable for any injury or damage as a result of using these unfinished trails.
