Cool off and splash around at Atlanta’s newest park, Historic Fourth Ward Park Conservancy. The Sprayground features two splash pads; one where the jets shoot water from out of the ground and another where the water comes from above. Next to the Sprayground, enjoy a spacious modern playground. Explore the amphitheater beside the playground surrounded by an aesthetically pleasing man-made lake with a fountain in the middle and a waterfall. Adjacent to the Sprayground, there is also a skate park for skate boarders and BMX riders. It is not currently connected to the park but it will be in the future.
