The Home Depot Backyard, an 11-acre event space, has officially opened next door to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The space, formerly the site of the Georgia Dome, will be used for tailgating during Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United games, concerts, festivals, fitness classes, film screenings, athletic events, playground and “curated events” for the Westside community.
According to officials, Fall programming for the space will be focused on testing a limited number of events including those related to arts and culture, health and wellness and community service.
