Old Fourth Ward
Settled in the early 1800s, Old Fourth Ward is an Intown Atlanta neighborhood with a great deal of history. The birthplace of civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is the site of the Martin Luther King Center and Memorial Park, King’s own Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the Sweet Auburn Historic District.
Located just east of downtown and north of Cabbagetown, Old Fourth Ward is a neighborhood that has been highly focused on redevelopment and renewal. In just a few years, with the revitalization of Edgewood Avenue, City Hall, and the King Historic District, along with the addition of the Atlanta BeltLine and the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park, Old Fourth Ward is now considered to be one of Atlanta’s “hippest” areas by residents and visitors alike. During the day, singles and families can be seen enjoying the newly-completed Historic Fourth Ward Park which encompasses 17 acres of new green space, a two-acre lake, playground, a state-of-the-art splash pad, an outdoor theater, athletic field and a world-class skate park. At night, with some of Atlanta’s top restaurants, bars and hot spots located in the neighborhood, residents enjoy an assortment of excellent dining experiences and an active night life. And, nowhere is community pride more evident than in the Old Fourth Ward as residents support local events like the Georgia Marathon, the Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival, Sweet Auburn Springfest, and One Musicfest.
