Enjoyed a nice walk amongst beautiful grounds. It's a large park, so couldn't cover it all in one trip.

In full bloom, Piedmont Park offers many options for long walks, runs, biking, or picnics. The Saturday farmer's market has expanded with local cheese, eggs, pasta, baked goods as well as veggies. Live music and fun people watching.

There are many kinds of events & festivals. Also you can bring your dog to the dog park. Around 200 acres to walk, play games, swim, or even tennis to name a few.

Piedmont Park is beautiful especially since the renovations. I really enjoy the Jazz Festival there. The only thing I would change would be to make it more accessible. If you ride the train, you have to walk for 10-15 minutes and parking....forget about it!

Spent a lovely couple of hours strolling through this park. The farmer's market had a nice variety of yummy things to enjoy, as well as bring home. I loved watching the families having some quality time together, running, playing, watching the ducks, throwing frisbees... the essence of springtime.

I always enjoy the Atlanta Jazz Festival, I have attended for over 20 yrs. This year we were told we could not light candles!! Really, a new rule! With all the mosquitoe's around also the candles create a nice ambiance in the evening.

An oasis of calm, green beauty in the city. We had a snooze in the sun under a tree - doesn't get much better!

The park is well maintained and is a decent place to relax, take a walk, run, exercise, play a game, or just sit and watch people! You can get a nice view of Atlanta’s skyline, particularly after sunset. It's fantastic to see the sunset colors over the water body inside the park. However, please beware after dark, since the place... More
