THE ATLANTA BELTLINE is transforming the city by providing a network of public parks, multi-use trails and transit along a historic 22-mile railroad corridor circling downtown Atlanta. Ultimately the Atlanta BeltLine will connect 45 different neighborhoods, all within the City of Atlanta. It is and will be vital to the expansion of Atlanta's regional transit and transportation network with links to the existing MARTA system and other transit services. The Atlanta BeltLine not only offers modern conveniences and the opportunity for exciting new development, but it is a living, breathing part of our community; not simply a means of getting somewhere but a destination unto itself! It offers a chance for Atlanta to redefine what it is to be a neighbor, to be a community, to be a region, and to share all that it has to offer.

While the entire scope of the project spans a 20-year period, the Eastside Trail is already being utilized weekly by thousands of people, with popular destinations like Piedmont Park, Ponce City Market, Historic 4th Ward Park, Inman Quarter and Krog Street Market as anchors along the way. The Westside Trail is fully funded and currently under construction with highlights such as The Urban Farm and connections to several city schools and parks. Plans for the Southwest Connector Trail are already underway, spurring an exciting revitalization of the Memorial Drive corridor to include the mixed-use redevelopment of the Atlanta Dairies complex. Other transit oriented development is planned or underway around MARTA stops like the Edgewood/Candler Park station, Oakland City, King Memorial and more.

The Atlanta BeltLine is also sparking a fun culture of health and activity in Atlanta. On any given weekend you will see yoga or boot camp groups in the parks, hundreds of people biking, walking, running the trails or just getting outside, socializing and experiencing the surrounding
