things to do
Connected by the Beltline to Freedom Park and Piedmont Park, the Historic Fourth Ward Park is nestled in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood near the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum. Just south of Ponce City Market, the Historic Fourth Ward Park features 17 acres of greenspace with fountains and fun for the family.
At the heart of the Historic Fourth Ward Park sits a two-acre lake, with an amphitheater at one end for concerts and events. A playground with slides, swings, rock walls, and climbing areas is perfect for energetic and adventurous children. As the summer gears up, the Historic Fourth Ward Park also offers a splashpad, which features jets of streaming water that spout from the ground and overhead. The splashpad is open from May 1 to October 1.
The world-class Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark is just south of the main park along the Beltline. Designed for skateboarders of all skill levels, Tony Hawk contributed $25,000 for the skatepark’s construction and praised the park’s design.
The Historic Fourth Ward Park offers something for every member of the family, and helps provide easy, walkable access to many of Atlanta’s top attractions.
