There’s a hidden cave in Chastain Park

The centerpiece of Chastain Park in the late 1930s was a sunken plaza known as the Master Grill. In the middle was a man-made, semicircular stone cave lined with benches and kerosene lamps. But in the 1960s the cave became a magnet for vandals, and by the late 1970s the Parks Department had buried the whole Master Grill.
