Old Fourth Ward
What Its Known For
Located between downtown and Midtown, Old Fourth Ward is one of Atlanta’s trendiest areas to live and/or visit. Home to Ponce City Market, the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail, and the Martin Luther King Jr. historic site, O4W is known for its cuisine, art, shopping, entertainment and history. Not only is the neighborhood extremely walkable, bike friendly and dog friendly, but a handful of public transit stations border Old Fourth Ward, providing residents with easy access to MARTA train lines and bus routes.
Some of Atlanta’s top restaurants and favorite cafes are located in the neighborhood, including those found in Ponce City Market—a central food hall offering provisions from famous chefs, local restaurants and pop-up eateries.
Freedom Park offers trails, art installations and open space throughout its 200-acres. Whereas more green space, playgrounds, and even novelties such as a skate park and splash park can be found at Central Park and Historic Fourth Ward Park.
