Piedmont Park, Atlanta

4.7
#4 of 21 in Parks in Atlanta
Piedmont Park boasts several miles of paths suitable for walking, jogging, biking, or inline skating. You can rent bikes and skates from Skate Escape, opposite the park. Children can scamper around two playgrounds with swings, slides, a sandpit, and climbing dome. Anglers can head to the lake to try their luck catching largemouth bass, bream, and catfish. Bring some sandwiches along to enjoy in the sheltered picnic area or grassy lawns, or bring food to cook on one of the 22 barbecue grills. This large urban park covers 76 hectares (189 acres). Put Piedmont Park into our Atlanta day trip planning website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great park in the perimeter. Lots and lots of space. Nature-y feel with a beautiful lake to walk across. The views here are spectacular. The scenery here is so pretty. It really is perfect for portraits, family pictures, prom photos, etc. There are so many festivals and events that take place here. Intramural teams practice and play here. It really is a nice environment and place that brings Atlanta together. My only gripe is that there is limited street parking. My advice is to find a residential street nearby, park on the street there (just ensure that you're not gonna be towed), and walk to the park. However, if you have a heavy load with lots to carry, have small kids who don't do well with walking more than you have to, or have trouble walking/limited ability and mobility, then it may be best to park in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens parking deck. It's $2 for the first hour then $1 for each additional 30 minutes I believe. There are lots of yummy restaurants nearby where you can grab a bite to eat or something to sip on. The dog parks are great for dog owners. If parks aren't your thing for your pup, you can walk them around on the trails throughout the park.
  • There's a lot going on in this Park. I haven't seen it in its prime and I can't say I really want to. The three times I've been there have been really good tho. The first time was in Fall and it was so beautiful. Definitely go in the fall! The colors are amazing!
