Piedmont Park

Piedont Park
Call: (404) 875-7275 or visit www.piedmontpark.org
The 200-plus-acre park with tennis, walking trails, and a pond has been Atlanta's place to go on a Sunday afternoon since it was first purchased by the city in 1904. Piedmont Park added 13 acres in 2013 and unveiled a collection of new entrances. The add-on near the intersection of Piedmont Road and Monroe Drive is crowned by the Piedmont Commons, a multi-use field for relaxing and picnicking. New access points to the park, including a trail through the North Woods forest alongside the Atlanta Botanical Garden, offer easy access to Ansley Park and Morningside residents. The effort was a follow-up to a 2011 expansion that included wetlands, an expanded and improved dog park, and an interactive fountain. Even more excellence is on the way: The park's final planned expansion may include a skate park, and eventually the Beltline will be complete alongside the greenspace.
