Have you been to Westside Park yet? Located in northwest Atlanta, the city’s newest and largest green space features 2.5 miles of pedestrian-friendly trails; a beautiful playground with activities for kids and adults; large, open fields for picnics and playing; shaded picnic tables; and much more. The park’s centerpiece is a 2.4-billion-gallon reservoir that increases Atlanta’s freshwater drinking supply from 3-4 days to 30-60 days. The grand overlook with views of the reservoir and the downtown Atlanta skyline is an experience you won’t want to miss.
