Old Fourth Ward

Located east of Downtown Atlanta, Historic Old Fourth Ward dates back to the 1860s. The term “Old Fourth Ward” goes back to 1937, when the state legislature reduced the number of city wards from 13 to 6, combining many old wards into new ones. The “old fourth ward,” became part of the new 5th Ward. The city’s ward system ended in 1954. Old Fourth Ward is also often referenced as O4W and Historic Fourth Ward.

In 1903, the Ponce de Leon Amusement Park opened, on the site of what would become the Sears building and the Historic Fourth Ward Park. In 1928, Sears Roebuck built its Southern Regional Distribution Center on Ponce de Leon, in what was and still is, the largest brick building in the Southeast. In 1989, the building was purchased by the City of Atlanta and re-christened City Hall East.

In 2006, the City of Atlanta began work on the Atlanta BeltLine, a 22-mile transportation/ recreation corridor that will encircle Atlanta’s downtown. Plans included a number of parks as part of the project, including the 17.5 acre Historic Fourth Ward Park.

City Hall East was sold in 2011 and re-developed as a mixed-use development of retail, office, condos and apartments. It opened in 2015 as Ponce City Market.

By 2012, the first two phases of the Historic Fourth Ward Park was built on the site of the old Ponce de Leon amusement park. The park was one of the first completed urban park elements of the Atlanta Beltline project and starts in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward behind Ponce City Market and stretches South to Freedom Parkway and the Carter Center. The main section of the park includes open, passive lawns, a playground, a splashpad, an outdoor theater and a 2-acre lake, while a second phase features a world-class skatepark, another fabulous playground, and a large multi-use athletic field.
