Developers can officially bid to design the area that is to become Atlanta’s biggest park.
A request for proposals to develop and design the future Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry, located on about 280 acres adjacent to the Atlanta Beltline, was posted by the city's Department of Procurement Tuesday.
The Beltline master plan for the park, adopted by Atlanta City Council in March 2009, envisions a park with tournament-quality baseball, a skate park and an informal outdoor theater.
A pre-proposal conference will be held Aug. 7 at 11 a.m. at City Hall, with a virtual site tour to immediately follow. The site is located one mile west of midtown, between Johnson Road and Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, and between Bankhead and West Midtown.
