The access road to the park is at 2450 Reynolds Park Road, next to the William Roscoe Anderson Jr. Recreation Center. Residents attending the celebration should bear in mind that Reynolds Park Road is closed between Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Peachtree Street to replace two bridges. A detour is set up using Argonne Boulevard.
The park is the site of a former Vulcan quarry and includes overlooks, an observation pier, bathrooms, and green space. The project also includes construction of the Waughtown Connector, a greenway that connects the Waughtown area to the park and extends to the Peachtree Greenway to provide access from Reynolds Park and the Salem Creek Greenway.
Voters approved $5 million for Quarry Park and the Waughtown Connector in the November 2014 bond referendum. For more information about these and other bond projects go to 2014Bonds.CityofWS.org.
