What Is It? With a large tree canopy covering the city, Atlanta is known for its great spaces and outdoor activities.
Why Do It? Piedmont Park is right outside of the downtown area. Located on 185 acres, there is plenty of room for families to explore and get some fresh air. The park hosts playgrounds, history tours, an aquatic center and has a bike rental service. You can even fish off of one of three piers at Lake Clara Meer. Once you’re done exploring, visit one of the park’s restaurants to grab a bite to eat.
Good to Know: If you’re visiting in early April, don’t miss the Dogwood Festival. Held while the dogwood trees in Piedmont Park are blooming, the festival features music, an artist market, a kids village, and lots of food.
