Piedmont Park Professional Review and Guide
"For more than a century, this 186-acre park north of downtown has served as Atlanta’s “common ground,” hosting Confederate veterans, presidents, musicians (from John Philip Sousa to the Allman Brothers), baseball games, and the first football game ever played in Georgia.
The landscape, designed by the Olmsted Brothers, was commissioned for the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition. Piedmont’s dog park is among the nation’s top ten. At the northern end are the Atlanta Botanical Garden (ABG) and the fifteen-acre Storza Woods, one of the largest vestiges of mature hardwood forest in the city."
