Connectivity

Our vision is to provide enhanced connectivity among a network of sidewalks, nature trails, and multi-use trails in and around Atlanta Memorial Park, both east and west of Northside Drive. 

Our goals:

 –     Walkways around Memorial Park, under Northside Drive, around the golf course, tennis center and recital hall, and to the Beltline.

 –     Bike paths east of Northside Drive, crossing Peachtree Creek, connecting to the Beltline, and under Northside Drive to Memorial Park.

 –     A flood-resistant nature trail through the interior of Memorial Park.

What we are doing:

 –     Working to secure the Northside Drive bridge underpass with GDOT and PATH.

 –     Finalizing permitting for the 5-foot sidewalk to be installed around Memorial Park. Coordinating with Renew Atlanta (funder), HGOR (land planner), Long Engineering (engineer), and ASTRA (contractor).

 –     Working with GDOT and neighborhoods on new bridge sidewalk and crosswalk designs.

 –     Hosting community meetings about pathways, roads, bridge replacement, etc.

What we have done:

 –     Launched the Northside Drive bridge underpass proposal. Continued advocacy and numerous follow-up meetings with PATH, GDOT and BJGCF have led to a bridge design which accommodates the underpass.

 –     Secured funding and coordinated design and permitting of the sidewalk around Memorial Park.

 –     Hosted meetings with PATH and neighborhoods for input regarding the multi-use trail design looping around the golf course.

Our future plans:

 –     Continue advocacy for the Northside Drive bridge underpass and surface walkways.

 –     Host community meetings for Beltline updates and other connectivity issues.

 –     Advocate for the maintenance and safety of the sidewalks, nature trails and pathways throughout Atlanta Memorial Park.
