Opened in the summer of 2021, the Westside Park is now the City of Atlanta’s largest planned greenspace at 280 acres. It serves as a catalyst for Westside neighborhoods and is the home of a critical backup source of drinking water for the entire city.
This multi-use trail is a critical link in the region’s trail network, with connections between job centers, other development activities on the westside of Atlanta, Maddox Park, the Bankhead MARTA station, and the Westside Park.
