If you want to get in touch with nature, spend an afternoon in Piedmont Park, Atlanta’s answer to New York’s Central Park. Sprawling over 189 acres, the park has its own running track, swimming pool, lake, dog park, bocce courts, and tennis courts. It holds favorite local events like the annual Dogwood Festival, countless concerts, and is the finish line for the Peachtree Road Race. It’s not uncommon to see a movie or television show being filmed here, so grab a picnic from a nearby restaurant and spend a few hours outside.

The Greener Side of Atlanta
Piedmont Park is a great place to experience the outdoors in Atlanta, whether you want to shoot some hoops, play a game of bocce ball, take the kids to a playground, or just go for a stroll. The park also has two ball fields and two soccer pitches, as well as volleyball courts and an aquatic center. In short, if you're looking to burn off some steam, this is a beautiful place to do it in a variety of different ways! Keep an eye on their website for events and farmers' markets in the park as well.
I've been to an abundance of festivals that I still miss majority of them! Every weekend it's a new festival! So much culture to truly experience for FREE! Try to attend the Jazz Festival, the International Arts Festival, & the Chinese Lantern Festival! You won't regret it!
