On a one day Atlanta trip, my wife and I were roaming around and stumbled on the park by chance.

Sunday afternoon and the park had some sort of Latin festival going on. It was pretty live and the folks seemed to be enjoying themselves.

The park was quiet and well spaced out. Those who were around enjoying the sights had ample space to walk around.

Police patrolling were very friendly and also strict on the "No Smoking" policy in the park. This was very nice to see enforced.

If in Atlanta, this is a stop to be made.

Piedmont Park is one of our favorite places. We used to live right down the street and would walk to the park on the weekends for concerts or to grab a drink at Park Tavern. Piedmont Park is a lot bigger than most people know so there is plenty of space and lots to explore.

We were in Atlanta for about 4 days and we came to the park twice.
There was an art festival going on when we visited the 2nd time.
Didn't buy anything but was amazed with the different forms of art.
If this is your first visit to the park, make a note of where you enter from and where you exit out of.
Because I got lost.

A green oasis in the middle of a huge city. P- Park is surprisingly large for it's central location, and is a perfect location if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a while. Plenty of space so you can find a spot if you want to be alone for a while. Lots of shaded areas, where you watch squirrels, chipmunks, birds play or just chill with a cold drink and watch joggers, walkers, people wanting to kick a ball around while you relax. Spectacular views of the cityscape which look great in photos. A couple of decent cafes, plus an outdoor pool, and lake too. There are public restrooms and drinks vending machines and drinking fountains. There are statues and monuments with information dotted around too.

If you find yourself near Piedmont Park on a Sat. morning between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. from March 1 to mid Dec., visit the Green Market (Farmers' Market) located at Piedmont Avenue and the 12th Street Park Entrance. While not huge, it has a nice variety of vendors with samples, and is so nice to walk there, shop, and meander for a bit.

Map http://www.piedmontpark.org/visit/park_map.html

You can park at the main parking deck (enter on Monroe Dr.) and walk over (all paved/wheelchair accessible). You will come out of the garage and veer right, and right again, then pass the backside of the Botanical Garden and stay to the right of the soccer fields to wind your way around and down towards the 12th street entrance.

Or, if staying at a hotel nearby or coming from the Arts Center MARTA train stop, take Peachtree to 14th, go left (east) and down to Piedmont, then turn right and walk to 12th and enter on the left. Street parking will be a challenge, so walking is encouraged. The 12th and 14th street entrances are wheelchair accessible. There is a small fee for parking at the park's garage, but is much more affordable than many of the garages up on Peachtree if you are only staying a couple of hours.

There are food stands for breakfast/brunch and vendors with artisan condiments, fresh flowers, handmade soaps and lotions, farm-fresh fruit and veggies, cheeses, and other yummies. I went in Aug. and got a bag of the last peach harvest (heavenly!) and a couple of sauces, one for a gift, one to keep.

Take some cash to make for faster transactions (most stands seemed to also take credit cards).
