    Great place for running after a long day or to relax with friends on the weekend. Go exploring and check out the wooded walkway through the Six Springs Wetlands near the dog park!

    Tennis courts, a swimming pool, a popular dog park, and paths for walking, jogging, and rollerblading are part of the attraction, but many retreat to the park's lawn for a view of the Midtown skyline. Read more

    So much room for activities! Seriously tho, if the park seems crowded there's always a nook or cranny longing to be filled. Best place for frisbee throwing and people watching.

    Piedmont Park is just a beautiful as Central Park in New York. I had my first "family picnic" here. There's also a big doggie park area for Fiddo to run around and play.

    Be care near the 10th St entrance to Piedmont Park on the southwest side of the park. Gangs have been known to hang out here. It is on the police watch list.

    Check out Atlanta's beautiful Piedmont Park. The lake, the Green, the Dog Park... one of the greatest spots to have a cookout on the weekends.

    Whether running, excercising or chillin'. I love this park. If you have to drive there, parking is a bit of a pain be prepared to pay.

    A huge greenspace in Atlanta, which was coincidentally designed by Frederick Law Olmstead (who also designed Central Park in NYC). A great place to take a walk.

    During summer time this is the best place to take a while and get some "me time" or spend time with a friend. It's peaceful and pretty.

    The jazz fest is always a clusterfuck for parking. Either come very early or later like 6pm to avoid driving around for an hour looking for parking.
