|About these ratings|
Adjacent to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in Midtown, Piedmont Park is the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon. Picnic areas are plentiful, but make sure to pack your lunch ahead of time; food vendors are only allowed in during festivals and other special events. Paths for biking, walking, and jogging are available, as well as designated sports areas for soccer, bocce, and everything in between.
TripAdvisor users both warn that parking spots can be sparse, especially on the weekend, so consider taking the MARTA. Entrance to the park is free but there's a small fee to go swimming at the pool. Sports field reservations need to be made in advance online on the parks official website.
