Central Park is a large public park in Old Fourth Ward closest to the North Avenue MARTA station on the red/gold rail line. Amenities include walking paths, baseball diamond and bleachers, basketball and tennis courts, a playground, and an indoor recreational center.

Walking time to the park is approximately 15 minutes (see walking map). Take the North Avenue/West Peachtree street exit out of the station and turn left on North Avenue. Walk about three blocks and turn right on Central Park Place. The area has traditionally been crime heavy, so be aware of your surroundings and stick to walking on major streets.

If you don’t want to walk, board bus 2 or bus 102 at the North Avenue MARTA station and also exit at Central Park Place, which is at the bottom of a hill just past an apartment community.
