Very cool, I didn't even know there was a quarry over there. I would actually be more interested in seeing its sheer cliffs and rock faces before it becomes a lake. I cannot believe Piedmont Park is only 200 acres (1/3 of a sq. mi.) and this will only be 1/2 sq. mi. The parks seem much bigger than that to me when you are in them.

Go take the Beltline Bus Tour (which is free) ASAP. It's the only way to get into the park site at present.

And I agree with you, btw: I sorta love the unfilled lake/quarry. It's like Atlanta has its own mini canyon.

This is pretty cool. It is not only going to be a new park and a new activity in NW Atlanta (an area that needs development), but it will also help solve Atlanta's water problems.
