Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry
The City of Atlanta partnered with HGOR to master plan the entirety of what will eventually be Atlanta’s largest park destination. Westside Park’s purpose is centered on creating a sense of culture and connectivity that fosters community engagement. The strategy behind achieving this goal is to design and implement an ambitious greenspace that is cohesive with and accentuates the quarry-turned-reservoir on site. When complete, the park will showcase a grand high overlook with spectacular views back to the Atlanta skyline, a stage, architectural follies, a community farm, a braided stormwater management system and trail connectivity to the Atlanta Beltline, the most comprehensive revitalization effort ever undertaken by the city. Phase One implementation, designed by HGOR, broke ground Mid-September of 2018 and is slated to open in 2019.
