This weekend, we had the chance to check out the Historic Fourth Ward Park and Conservancy, the newest Beltline greenspace situated in the area of its namesake. It’s the first phase of an expanded greenspace project that will ultimately link with Ralph McGill Boulevard, the proposed Beltline and the city’s first (planned) public skate park. The park, a joint project between ABI and the city’s Department of Watershed Management creates a green amenity and helps Atlanta meet a federal judge’s order to overhaul the city’s aging sewer system.

Featuring:
-The centerpiece stormwater retention pond surrounded by tall granite walls
-A 350-seat natural amphitheatre
-Chairs carved from stones by local artist Maria Artemis

The public can access the park via Morgan Street, Dallas Street and Edith Street. Wheelchair access to the pond is available at the intersection of Garden Park Drive and Morgan Street.

This is an artistic rendering of what the conservancy will look like eventually:
