Atlanta Art Complements Once Concealed Skyline

Posted: Nov. 28th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Resulting from a $2.8 billion plan that renovates over 20 miles of a now defunct railroad corridor encircling Atlanta, a new set of paths and trails offering a stunning view of Atlanta's skyline have opened in the city and attracted a host of artists and landscapers. The paths are reported as already having become overused, with many reports of residents demanding an even further expansion of the project.

Since a new urban trail opened last month in a former rail corridor in Atlanta, it has drawn crowds of joggers, dog-walkers and cyclists to take in spectacular views of the skyline and neighborhoods once seen only by train.

Hundreds of trees have been planted along the paved 14-foot-wide path, while artists have added works such as windmills made of bicycle parts and colorful murals on concrete overpasses.

The path, known as the Eastside Trail, is part of a $2.8 billion plan to transform a 22-mile railroad corridor that encircles Atlanta into a network of trails, parks, affordable homes and streetcar lines
