  1. I am a long time Ormewood park resident. I live by Glenwood Ave near the new Bill Kennedy section of the Belt Line. I am huge Beltline advocate and I have been excited about this project since I first read about it around 2002. I check your website often and try to keep up as much as possible.

    I am wondering if any parks are slated to coincide with the beltline on this corridor? Currently there are not any public parks in Ormewood, and parents like myself have to load up our cars and bicycles to get to the nearest safe park. I am hoping the BeltLine will consider a public playground near this intersection as part of the overall layout. In my humble opinion, IT IS VERY MUCH NEEDED😊.

    Thank you and the entire Belt-Line community/team for working everyday to improve this city.

    1. Hi Matthew – the closest park that is open, with an expansion up to 20 acres, is Boulevard Crossing Park. Thanks! ~Jenny
