    The oldest city park in Atlanta, checkout the zoo within and the old-school Victorian homes that surround it. A favorite spot to go for a walk in the city.

    Walk along the trails and feel like you've escaped the city for a few moments. The park is so tranquil and beautiful especially in the Spring when all the flowers are blooming.

    Grant Park is spacious yet intimate. A park more likely to be used by locals than transplants or visitors.

    There is an exorbitant amount of chicken bones in the park. Your dog will try to eat them.
