This open-air amphitheater (known to locals as The Fred) was originally built to be the home for the famous drama The McIntosh Trail. Over the years, its purpose evolved. In the late 1980s, with the help of the City's Recreation Department, it began to hold concerts for senior citizens. Local theater groups then began to use it for their shows, as did the Atlanta Pops Orchestra. It is now most famous for the summer concerts series, where wonderful artists come out to perform for crowds that can reach 1600 people.
