Proctor Creek Greenway Description

The first phase of the Proctor Creek Greenway opened in May 2018 and stretches nearly 3 miles in northwestern Atlanta, surrounded by the neighborhoods of Bankhead, Grove Park, Rockdale and West Highlands.

Near the trail's southern end is Maddox Park, one of the oldest parks in the city, which offers a pool and athletic facilities. From the trail's beginning adjacent to the park and Bankhead Station, which serves MARTA's Green Line, the paved Proctor Creek Greenway winds northwest along the waterway, largely through a tree-lined corridor and the developing Westside Reservoir Park. When complete, the park will be one of Atlanta's largest and will surround a former granite quarry. After crossing Johnson Road NW, the trail passes an elementary school and ends shortly thereafter near Heman E. Perry Park.

Future plans call for the trail to span 7 miles, reaching the Chattahoochee River farther north and the Westside Trail, a segment of the Atlanta Beltline, to the south.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available near the southern end of the trail in Maddox Park (1115 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway NW). You can also arrive via public transportation at MARTA's Bankhead Station on the Green Line.
