More About Chastain Park
Originally bought by Fulton County in 1900, the land that Chastain Park now occupies was originally an almshouse and a cemetery. Eventually, the almshouse was razed as more residential space was needed, and Chastain Park was born. Current amenities include golf, jogging paths, playgrounds, tennis courts, a swimming pool, horse parks, and an amphitheater.

Chastain Park Amphitheater
The Chastain Park Amphitheater has been around since 1944 and is considered Atlanta’s Oldest Outdoor Music Venue. Around 200,000 spectators visit the amphitheater each season. In the 1940’s, when Chastain Park was in the midst of development, Fulton County Commissioner Troy Green Chastain decided to include a music venue in addition to the traditional amenities planned for Chastain Park.
Modeled after the Byrd Park amphitheater in Richmond, Virginia, Chastain Park Amphitheater opened, slowly but surely, in 1944. To increase awareness and visitation, free concerts were held, and currently the amphitheater holds events and concerts from April to October each year.
