This weekend’s BeltLine walk on February 27th, 2010 will be awesome – and you should be there! Whether you are an artist answering the call for artists’ submission for Art on the BeltLine, or a volunteer interested in bringing the BeltLine to life, or you’re just curious to see what all this fuss about transit and trails is all about, you should come out! Meet at noon at Washington Park’s tennis center.
Another BeltLine walk, this time to begin planning for the huge BeltLine public arts project and exihibition debuting along 8 miles of trail this summer and fall!
On our Atlanta BeltLine walk this morning, we saw the railroad cross tied pulled up in preparation for the mulch hiking trail coming this spring. We also worked on planning for the first BeltLine public arts project, which will range from sculpture to performance art to horticulture, coming this summer to 8 miles of open trail!
This past Saturday morning, I had the opportunity to walk a continuous three mile hike of the Atlanta BeltLine path from Piedmont Park to DeKalb Avenue! Angel Poventud and Eli Dickerson led almost 30 other intrigued residents on this urban hike along Atlanta’s old rail corridors.
The first abandoned railroad tracks are removed and recycled in the Atlanta BeltLine’s northeast section in Inman Park to make way for an urban hiking path!
