    This is a huge part in Atlanta midtown. Nice view of the downtown. Great place to run, walk, and walk the dog.

    Piedmont Park is a great place for recreation with the beautiful Atlanta serving as a backdrop. Take your dog for a run, throw the frisbee, and maybe see a concert.

    The beautiful Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s equivalent to Central Park, a 185-acre paradise in the middle of a sprawling midtown metropolis. Perhaps taken for granted today as a place for concerts, city events, a beautiful skyline view or even a simple dog walk, Atlanta’s biggest park was not always owned by the city and open for the public.

    Piedmont Park began its life as a forest before being cleared for farmland; later, and maybe most notably, the park was purchased by the Gentlemen's Driving Club for horse racing and later as an exposition and festival site.

    Between May and December each year, history tours are conducted every Saturday at Piedmont Park, where visitors can walk through the park’s transformation from farmland to Atlanta’s most famous recreation area.

    Piedmont Park is the largest park in downtown Atlanta. Piedmont Park is expansive and is a nice respite from the traffic-plagued city. There is also a large dog park in Piedmont Park, so I would suggest dog lovers to come here with their dogs.

    The park is really nice, a welcome green space in the city. During the summer months, there are a lot of festivals taken places here.
