Several hundred people enjoyed a glorious fall day in the park this past Saturday at the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s third and final Play Day of 2016. The site was Boulevard Crossing Park in Chosewood Park, which opened in the fall of 2011 and sits on the southern edge of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. This is the second time the park has hosted an Atlanta BeltLine Play Day.
