Plans Unveiled for the Future Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry
ATLANTA – Mayor Kasim Reed today unveiled the plans for Phase One of the future Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry. Mayor Reed was joined by Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Amy Phuong, Department of Watershed Management Commissioner Kishia L. Powell, Councilmember Michael Julian Bond, Renew Atlanta General Manager Faye DiMassimo, and Atlanta Beltline Partnership Executive Director Rob Brawner for the unveiling.
“The future Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry will transform an historic property on the Westside and bring something incredible to the community and to all of Atlanta,” said Mayor Reed. “We are connecting more residents than ever to parks and greenspace. We are creating a healthy and sustainable City where everyone can bring and build their dreams. Once completed, this greenspace will be the largest park in the City, 100 acres larger than Piedmont Park. Our Westside residents deserve best-in-class parks and infrastructure, and with this project, we are delivering on our promise.”
Phase One of the Future Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry will include a notable gateway entrance at the intersection of Johnson Road and Grove Park Place on the north side of the park. The gateway design will provide lighting, signage and visually appealing graphics. The restoration of Grove Park Place will include resurfacing of the roadway and the rehabilitation and enhancement of greenery along the corridor.
