The festival is a great way to see the national award-winning Historic Fourth Ward Park. The 17-acre park starts at North Avenue directly across from the Ponce City Market and continues south to Freedom Parkway. Features include walking paths, green space, two-acre lake used for storm water control, amphitheater, playground and a splash pad. There is a second section of the park located on the BeltLine that features a skate park. Both sections will be connected in the future to allow access from the main park to the BeltLine.
