It’s been a year—give or take a couple of weeks—since the Atlanta Beltline’s Westside Trail was officially unveiled for public use, following three years of hype and roughly $43 million.
Linking Washington Park to Adair Park, the trail is dotted with 16 different access points—14 of them ADA accessible—lighting and an embedded centerline that designates left and right lanes.
Shaded in places by trees and tunnels, it’s the peaceful antithesis of the Eastside Trail’s commercialism and crowds, as we noted during a photo tour last month.
As promised, we ventured back to finish the Visual Journeys job last week, capturing in technicolor the art-bedecked segment that wends from Adair Park up to a West End commercial node.
Let’s start at the southernmost end of the Westside Trail, where it will one day link with the 4.5-mile Southside Trail corridor.
