On Oct. 19 2018, the new Walden Athletic Complex opened to host the JV football team’s last game of the season. Although the team lost 14-12, to finished the year 0-6, against the Douglass Astros, the Knights were in good spirits. Many varsity players, coaches, friends and family members came out in support of the team, including head varsity coach Kevin Clark.

The complex opened to relieve overcrowding and limited space for Grady’s sports teams on campus. Located two miles south of the school at the former Walden Middle School site, the complex will provide field space for baseball, softball, lacrosse, JV football and soccer and ultimate frisbee. The complex overlooks the downtown connector in the Old Fourth Ward and has the Downtown Atlanta skyline as its backdrop.
