Atlanta Beltline

What is the Atlanta Beltline? What's an Arboretum? The best way to find out is to take a bus, walking, or biking tour of the massive urban redevelopment program. Putting Atlanta on a path to 21st-century economic growth and sustainability, visiting groups will not only get great views of an Arboretum, a connection to nature in an urban setting, but see history unfolding before their eyes! Immerse learners in the natural beauty of the Atlanta BeltLine with an Arboretum Walking Tour led by expert docents from Trees Atlanta. Regular tours occur Fridays and Saturday mornings, and custom tours are also available. Groups will learn about native trees, special features, historical information, and, of course, the one-of-a-kind Arboretum!
