“The Marietta Square”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Definitely needs a revamp. Have recently been to the square in Woodstock, and it's jumping. It seems to be a "go to spot". Marietta Square has a few nice, new restaurants, but the place right now is not a "happening" place. In the summer months, there are some fun concerts at Glover Park which are free, and a few festivals (food and art).
I feel that although it is a cute square with some nice shops around the park, the square is like a sleepy town square.

“Great small town square”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Such a cute area with a lot of little quirky, fun shops and interesting restaurants. Don't miss Limelight, L. Michelle, the Christmas/ candy store and the Marietta Wine Market! Glover Park itself is cute with a central fountain and lots of benches. Take a book, grab some food and just relax and enjoy a nice Georgia day!

“Pretty park”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Marietta Square is a pretty little park. The fountain was being cleaned when we were there so nothing was going on and not able to take pictures of it. Nice little shops and great restaurants surrounding the park.

“Social Hub”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

Marietta Square is atypical of a city square of the South. This is a great little park with many activities year round and most of them are free. This includes music, art, fundraisers, food. Marietta Square is surrounded on three sides with lovely little shops and eateries, the Earl Smith Strand Theatre, and not too far from parking if you miss a direct spot right along the square. Summer nights with the kids, a picnic basket and music makes for a wonderful evening.

“Circle the square”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

The Marietta Square is a great place to go during the day or in the evening. There is the First Friday art walk, with local artists setting up around the square, as well as the several galleries located there. There are concerts on Friday at lunch time during the summer as well as summer evening concerts. Many antique shops and a variety of restaurants and sweet shops are also along the square. And the park is small but beautiful....well worth a visit. Highly recommended.
