Turnkey Begins Expansion of Atlanta’s Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park
Turnkey Construction and Roofing is currently working on an exciting project for the Atlanta Parks and Recreation Department at the Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park (HFWSP). The HFWSP is Atlanta’s first public skatepark, originally constructed in 2011, and has become such a popular attraction within the Atlanta skateboarding community that an enlargement has become a necessity.
Turnkey Construction and Roofing is providing services to remove landscaping and infill concrete to enlarge the existing Skate Park and accommodate the facility’s increasing popularity.
Included in the scope of work is the excavation and removal of landscape, tree stumps and grass to install a 4 inch stone base of concrete. The excavated dirt and soil will be filled into low areas of the site near the BeltLine path. Several drains are also being installed into the existing storm water system to allow for drainage of water off the concrete.
The HFWSP, predominantly funded through the Atlanta BeltLine Inc. (ABI), the entity overseeing the planning and execution of the Atlanta BeltLine vision, was also partially funded by the Tony Hawk Foundation. Hawk took interest in the original project due to its extraordinary size and design, which allows for skaters of every skill level to enjoy the park. The local Atlanta skateboard community was highly involved in the design process which contributed to this exceptional facility. In addition to world-class skateboard amenities, the park also includes a playground and multi-use athletic field.
