When: Saturday, November 3, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Where: Meet on the Eastside Trail in front of New Realm Brewing where the Gateway Trail heads down to Historic Fourth Ward Park
What: The Gateway Trail connects Historic 4th Ward Park to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail. This heavily-used access point across from New Realm Brewing boasts naturalistic plantings and artist Leslie Tharp’s “Startle” deer sculptures. The area is currently overgrown with both native and non-native vegetation, obscuring artwork and signage, crowding trees, and limiting visibility for those entering and exiting the trail. Volunteers are needed to help thin out overgrown vegetation and remove non-native plants, benefiting both the BeltLine arboretum and trail visitors. Please join Park Pride, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, and Trees Atlanta in improving this important amenity on the Eastside Trail! Special thanks to REI for their support of this event.
