The East Point PATH is an ongoing project that includes at least 9.6 miles of multi-use trails and greenways, with the potential for developing a total of 25 miles with connections to the Atlanta Beltline’s Southside Trail.
As part of East Point’s goal to make the city more walkable and interconnected through bicycling and pedestrian corridors, the trail uses a combination of newly widened, paved sidewalks and off-road segments as it meanders through the city.
As of Fall 2022, 1.4 miles of the PATH have been built. From the corner of Kimmeridge Drive and Headland Drive, the trail weaves through Sumner Park before following along Norman Berry Drive towards Spring Street Park.
Continuing past Warren Way and under the Main Street bridge, the trail heads into downtown East Point, where Headland Drive becomes Norman Berry Drive. A side path splits from the main route towards Tri-Cities High School and Bryan Park, passing restaurants along the way and ending at Harris Park by the corner of Jefferson Avenue. Many students walk to school and now this trail provides them with a safe way to do so.
In addition to linking Sumner Park and Harris Park, the trail creates greater connectivity for the residents of nearby communities including Jefferson Park, Semmes Park, and Frog Hollow. The city hopes that the trail will have a positive effect by increasing property values, job growth through attraction and retention of new employers, and overall community health by encouraging walking and physical exercise.
The next stages of trail development include extending the PATH across Norman Berry to the Wagonworks & Buggyworks buildings and connecting it with the East Point MARTA Station across from downtown East Point, where the recently completed City Hall building and StationSoccer field are located.
East Point's public transit system provides access to the trail and a number of bus and subway stations are located along or near the trail route. More information can be found on the MARTA website.
For those traveling by car, parking is available at a number of locations along the trail. View the TrailLink map for all options and detailed directions. Locations include parking lots at the intersection of Irene Kidd Pkwy and Main St, at Sumner Park, and at Harris Park.
