SPRINGVALE PARK is small, and therein lies its charm. The peaceful atmosphere is unlikely to be disturbed by a pickup game of any sort, because there aren’t any sports-sized fields at the 116-year-old park, located just two blocks off busy DeKalb Avenue. Instead of the usual shrieks and whoops, the park’s fountains gurgle soothingly. Landscaped by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1903, the park also boasts an original, 1889 stone wall and a Victorian-era vibe — all of which forms the perfect backdrop for a quiet lunch for two.
Bounded by Euclid Avenue, Waverly Way and Elizabeth Street. www.inmanpark.org.

As a (sometimes) leafy, (mostly) green oasis in the center of Atlanta's bustling urbania, Piedmont Park continues growing in popularity as a city escape. Two ponds and a pool provide the illusion of respite, though you're also likely to encounter bulldozers, bums and out-of-control Rollerbladers. Still, more than 3 million people visit the park each year, so it can't be all bad, can it? less...
