  • This lovely park transports visitors to the country side away from the city in just minutes. Except for seeing some of the skyline occasionally, it's a wonderful escape. She nice the bike trans begins...  more »

  • Great place to enjoy nature in the city. Exercise or just leisurely stroll. Throughout the year there are many events. Close to botanical gardens. Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • Great place to take my walk. One can get away from the roar of the cars on the street. Plus the view of Atlanta midtown skyline is so beautiful. It's our version of dramatic mountains by having such a beautiful skyline. Where the buildings can't have a flat top but must have an interesting design. It is beautiful both day and night.
  • Gigantic park, I don’t think we ever found the end of it! There does need to be some renovation work for drainage though. Went after a good rain one time and there was standing water/mud all over the paths. I know that’s what rain does; but there are some parks out there that do a wonderful job of water abatement to prevent this. There is also a pretty nice dog park. Lots of room to run.
  • As one of the largest and oldest parks right in the middle of the city, Piedmont Park never disappoints. With huge open fields for sports, a recently updated aquatic center, 2 large playgrounds, trails, a dog park, and even a splash ground, there is something for everyone! The park is the site of festivals all year long, concerts, even yoga in the park. Piedmont Park has some of the most gorgeous views of Midtown and many people take advantage of these views for photo sessions. In the summer I love to take my kids to the Legacy Fountains on the far north end of the park. It's so refreshing and rarely crowded like other splash grounds in the area!
  • You can definitely spend all day here! A lot of people were biking on the paths. There is a lot of shade from all the beautiful tall trees. There is an aquatic center and the botanical gardens. It's very clean and well maintained. There is a parking structure and restrooms throughout the park. Stroller friendly and the parking structure is convenient.
  • We went and explored this cute park one drizzly night. We had so much fun! The whole place was basically empty due to the rain, but it didn't stop us. Would love to go back during the day sometime. Very well kept and felt safe. The pathways were well lit.
