After fifteen years of planning and construction, Atlanta’s largest park is finally making its debut today. Locals will gather with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of Westside Park Phase I.
LONG is proud to have provided civil site design for this project, as well as surveying services. The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry is 280 acres, the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. It will also be transformative for Westside neighborhoods and become the home of a critical 2.4-billion-gallon backup source of drinking water for the city.
Park elements include a grand entrance, circulation drives, multiple rain gardens, a playground, parking lots, a grand lawn, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir, trails and Mercedes Benz Stadium.
LONG is excited for this milestone completion and is currently designing the south trail extension connecting Westside Park to Woodson Park Academy, Grove Park Community, and Proctor Creek Trail.
