Arthur Langford Jr. Park
This 6,500-square-foot skatepark opened in December on the Atlanta BeltLine along Pryor Road in southeast Atlanta’s Joyland neighborhood. It’s a great spot if you’re a beginner because it’s mostly flat with stuff you’d find on normal streets: curbs, rails, steps, no steep drops. Look for skate clinics funded by Coca-Cola there.

For years skaters gathered at an abandoned trucking company here, bringing in their own ramps. When the Atlanta BeltLine announced plans for an official skatepark, skaters were invited to help with the design. At 17,500 square feet, it’s bigger than three pro basketball courts put together. Try out the bowls, concrete mounds, and grind rails.
