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.
Cool park with pleasant landscaping, children's equipment, and even a splash pad. The lower section has a lovely waterfall and walking area around the lagoon with various plants and horticulture to observe. For the fifth star, the grounds department would have to do more to maintain landscaping and foliage.
No parking for events. We had to park on the street 4 blocks down. They do have a bathroom and good ramps for skateboarding.
Love this park.. it's a go to place for fun during the summer months especially because of the splash pad, great playground, great walking areas with nice views, and you're right on the beltline at Ponce City Market. There's a lot to do. You could spend all day here.
A beautiful park-- lots of funky art in an around it which I LOVED. We attended the grilled cheese & beer festival here which I'd also recommend!
This is a gorgeous, well maintained park with adjacent access to the Beltline. The landscaping in this park is something to behold. For people with young children, there is a great playground in the upper area of the park. During the summer time, there is also a splash pad and wadding water feature. All free to the public. This park is a great amenity for anyone thinking of living in the area, and a huge improvement over the empty gravel lot that used to be where the park is now. Keep a look out on social media for large scale free events that local businesses often sponsor in the park, such a the spring and summer yoga classes put on by King of Pops.
