The Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark
The arrival of Atlanta’s first public skatepark was greeted with great excitement – with real life skateboard legend Tony Hawk breaking it in. Located alongside the Atlanta BeltLine corridor in the shadow of Freedom Parkway, the park offers world-class skateboard amenities as well as a playground and multi-use athletic field. Opened in spring 2011, it has quickly become a hot gathering spot for skaters, athletes and families alike.
This is one of my favorite parks in Atlanta, its tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but is right in the middle of it all. Its super beautiful and a peaceful place to take a nice walk and clear your head. Parking is limited depnding on the time of day. The playground and splash pad located behind the park area is just as awesome and its located across the street from the Ponce City Market.
I love this park! My dream is to get married in front of the fountain one day and I hope the city of Atlanta continues to beautify it. Great place to go for a walk, run, bike ride, exercise, soccer, ect..Take friends and family and enjoy of what this park has to offer!
The park is lovely BUT it is closed for renovations for what seems like an eternity. The pictures of the renovations look really great though, like it will finally be a legit alternative to piedmont park which is much needed as piedmont so frequently has events which take over the whole park. Hopefully the O4W community keeps that from happening on this side of town.
Nice to walk around. You can see turtles, fish, and birds in the middle of the city! Theres a nice play area for kids.
Not even worth 1 star. Paid for Grand VIP to attend Taste Atlanta and wasted my money. Not a lot of vendors... nowhere near all the vendors that were advertised - such a rip off😝!!! That's why they said no refunds... because they knew they weren't going to deliver what they promised. Soooo disappointing 😒
