The Quarry Park (Old Bellwood Quarry) :
On a bus
tour sponsored by the BeltLine this photo of the Quarry Park-to-be
This Park-to-be is set to be the crowning jewel in the Emerald
Necklace of Parks to provide open space in Atlanta, now and for many
generations of city dwellers to come. As the area grows and expands as
it is doing now, this park will serve the neighborhood as Piedmont Park
serves Midtown. This park is under planning by Alexander
Garvin & Associates to be developed by the City
of Atlanta under the Westside Study Group .
The Quarry Park-to-be is located on West Marietta Street down beyond
King Plow and to the west side of the Howell Station neighborhood. The
City of Atlanta's investments to fund key BeltLine acquisitions such as
the purchase of the Bellwood Quarry now total more than $55 million. The
goal of the BeltLine’s Five-Year Plan is 585-625 acres of greenspace
and is well on the way to achieving that objective.
will have a station there but in June 2006, as shown in the image above,
all it is is a lot of gravel and a cavernous pit. Much of Atlanta was
built from concrete made from this gravel in the past by Vulcan Materials.
The big pit will be a future reservoir but will have a fence around it
similar to many cities, but not as restrictive as the fence around the
Howell Mill City Reservoirs. In June 2006 City employees get quite upset
if one tries to enjoy the area around the Howell Mill reservoirs --- their
fences are more expansive than most cities and keep the area for 100's
of feet around the water totally isolated. This area is quite pleasant
to stroll and jog and when the fence is around the water only, as it will
be at The Quarry Park, people will be able to start enjoying it--something
for the MSAA to work on!
