The Saporta Report recounts the fascinating story of Zonolite Park, 12 woodsy acres near Briarcliff and Clifton Roads where trains stopped for two decades and dumped more than 1,200 tons of raw material containing asbestos. A nonprofit group is replanting the "land that nobody else wanted" and making trails to connect with other Atlanta parks. The project, rather awesomely, has been awarded $100,000 in federal matching funds for trail building. [Saporta Report]
