Piedmont Park Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"For more than a century, this 238-acre park, 2 miles north of downtown, has served as Atlanta’s “common ground,” hosting Confederate veterans, US presidents, musicians (from John Philip Sousa to the Allman Brothers), baseball games, and the state’s first football game (an 1892 contest between Georgia and Auburn).

The park was designed by the Olmsted Brothers for the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition, which drew more than a million visitors. While Piedmont is a park for recreation and “people-watching,” the green space is home to more than 175 species of birds. The nationally renowned Atlanta Botanical Garden occupies the park’s northern quarter. Plans are in development for further expansion of the park."
