Overall Assessment: I think this playground is the perfect size for toddlers. While there are lots of things to do for older kids, it is perfect for those young kids just learning to play on the playground. The slide isn’t too big. It’s not too high off the ground. The rainbow climber is just right. And the views are amazing. You literally have the most perfect view of downtown from this playground. I love it!
This space in the Old Fourth Ward was created in 1917 due to the Great Fire of Atlanta. Sounds ominous, doesn’t it? Read about it here.
