Gordon White Park
Transformative Beginnings for Our Communities
With its grand opening in 2008, Gordon White Park became the Atlanta BeltLine’s first official park. This triangle plot of land in a five-star intersection used to be an empty, grassy lot. The Atlanta BeltLine revived the park into an open greenspace with winding pathways, landscaped garden beds, and walls and benches for relaxing and taking in the sunshine.
Celebrating the First of Many “Firsts”
The first miles of our 33-mile trail network also got started here. The Atlanta BeltLine extends from Brown Middle School, through Rose Circle Park, up White Street, through Gordon White Park, up Muse Street to Langhorn Street, and west to Westview Cemetery along Westview Drive.
Get Connected to Nature, Art and Entertainment
Across White Street from the park is the Atlanta BeltLine corridor where transit will operate in the future. Currently, the corridor is an open, unpaved, interim hiking trail and usually features visual art during Art on the Atlanta BeltLine. Gordon White Park itself has become a hub for neighborhood gatherings and outdoor concerts.
Every fall, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine holds free performances in the park. The temporary public art exhibition runs from September to November, so you can catch one of our free shows! To learn more about our public art installations, visit the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine web site.
