Within the next 3 years Bellwood Quarry will transform into a huge music park for Atlantan’s according to city councilman Michael Julian Bond. Right now, it’s 300 acres of woods and trash, plus the quarry itself. “But the plan is for it to be a huge new park on Atlanta’s Westside, and the committee dedicated to redeveloping the site will start meeting next year”, says Bond.
Bond explains that there’s a lot of cleaning that needs to be done before it opens. Because it serves as a dumping location for different things such as concrete remains from Atlanta’s old Fulton County stadium.
The city of Atlanta bought the 300-plus acres around Bellwood Quarry in 2006. Even if you’ve never been there, you may have seen it on TV in The Walking Dead, or in our 7 Places You Must Visit in Georgia, although it’s closed to the public right now.
