Historic South Atlanta has a rich history of higher education, performing arts and community development. The community was established in the late 1880’s around original campuses of Clark University and Gammon Theological Seminary. Today, it is a neighborhood on the rise and is a short distance from D.H. Stanton Park and Chosewood Park, greenspaces that each offer many amenities.
Currently, the majority of the Southside Trail is an open unpaved Trail and provides connectivity between the paved Eastside and Westside Trails on the southernmost part of the Atlanta BeltLine loop. A 0.8 mile paved section is now open to the public and extends from the terminus of the Westside Trail at University Avenue and continues to just west of the I-75/85 overpass.
