Athkatla Waukeen s Promenade by ElmUnderleaf

Waukeen's Promenade is one of the most impressive structures in Athkatla. It is a huge marketplace, twice the size of Waterdeep's market and built as an oval stadium surrounded by terraced 50-foot walls. The Promenade has 75-foot-wide levels for consumer and mercantile traffic. From the upper levels falls some shade to the lower ones. The most expansive areas for merchants is the entry level on the ground or the first terrace over the entry arches. Greater guilds and merchant houses have monopolized that area of the market. Wide ramps lead up to the terraces where additional stalls and booths provide anything and everything from across the Realms. The city guards are constantly patrolling the market and therefore only a few illegal or magical items can be found at Waukeen's Promenade. But the Promenade is also a place where clandestine meetings are often planned for unlawful business, which actually takes place elsewhere.[1]

In the game Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn the Promenade is one of the main areas at the beginning of the adventure. The only place to buy some magical items is there the The Adventurer's Mart at the north western side of the lowest level. On the higher levels the adventures can find some taverns and inns.[2]
