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.
The McIntosh Trail Recreation Complex offers everything you could possibly want in a single park and more. The complex features a large loop trail, along which visitors can access plenty of attractions. These amenities include a BMX track, skateboard ramp, senior center, picnic area, the Flat Creek Nature Center, and the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, home to plenty of exciting concerts from major artists.
