June 11, 2011, Old Fourth Ward - Skateboarders (including the legendary Tony Hawk), Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall, city officials and nearby residents gathered along the Beltline to celebrate the grand opening of the Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park, the city's first public skate spot.
Located in the Old Fourth Ward in the shadows of Freedom Parkway, the 15,000 square-foot facility along the Beltline offers bowls, curbs, smooth-rolling concrete mounds — all the things a skateboarder could want.
