Piedmont Park reviews
There is so much open space to roam. It’s so beautiful when the trees are blooming. A nice pet friendly park in a lively city.

My daughter, wife and I were visiting Atlanta for the Thanksgiving holiday and decided we needed some exercise. Piedmont Park was a short walk from our hotel, so we spent about 1.5 hours walking...

Piedmont Park is a great tourist attraction. It reminds me of a southern Central Park. It was rather cold the day we went but there are joggers, dog walkers and a normal amount people taking work breaks when we arrived. If you are a tourist you have to try the park as it has multiple trails. The park has at least 4 trails that are flat. They do have swings for young kids. You can park walk to the park and stroll through midtown and see everything in about 2 days. There is the Atlanta Botanical Garden which is right next to the park as well. You can see water and lakes and its great for pictures. There are benches and places for picnics and also ways you can take photos with a good background. If you park really far away from the trail you might be able to find some free parking. The park was very clean and looked great. While I'm not a native to the location I was trying to search for free parking. It was a hard find but if you try about 20 minutes out and you're okay with it you can find some parking in some streets off of Monroe if you are down for the extra steps.
Nice park. Pretty big one too. Don't forget to take water bottle although u have enough drinking water fountains everywhere. Enough restroom facilities too. No crowd at all. 30 min free parking and $2.00 upto 1 hour. Got pretty good swimming pool too. Best for cycling and electric biking
