Bird-watching and strolling at Piedmont Park

With 211 acres to explore, Piedmont Park is located in the center of the city and is Atlanta’s largest green space. The park offers many amenities and activities to visitors, including free walking tours every Saturday at 11am from May through December to learn about the park’s history and wildlife.
