The BeltLine has the extraordinary potential to positively transform the City of Atlanta. It will combine greenspace, trails, transit, and new development along 22 miles of historic rail segments that encircle Atlanta and is a bundle of solutions to the challenges that threaten to limit Atlanta’s health and prosperity: traffic; deficient greenspace and recreation; and uneven economic development that has benefited some neighborhoods while leaving others behind.

The First BeltLine Section
The first section of the BeltLine trail system is opening NOW in Historic West End. Connecting Rose Circle Park to Brown Middle School and a completely renovated Gordon White Park, the trail is already improving mobility for local residents. Phase II – to be completed early next year – will wind through the Westview neighborhood out to Westview Cemetery.

Event Description
Join the residents of Southwest Atlanta as we run, jog and walk through the Historic West End and on the new BeltLine trail. Our inclusive Community Celebration will follow the BeltLine 5K and give our guests a taste of our rich culture and connect them to our communities.
