Food just tastes better outdoors! Piedmont Park has hundreds of great picnic spots where you can put down your blanket and lay out your spread. If you have a large group, you may want to rent one of two covered picnic pavilions. To rent a picnic pavilion, visit the City of Atlanta Office of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs website for more information and call 404.546.6757.
WPA Picnic Shelter, Piedmont Park.
The Work Progress Administration (WPA) built the Picnic Shelter in 1936. It measures 40’ x 60’ and can accommodate 160 people standing or 64 seated. Electricity and water are available. There are two built-in grills adjacent to the shelter.
Bandstand, Piedmont Park.
The nearby two-story brick Bandstand was built in 1915. It has a capacity of 30 people standing, or 25 seated. Electricity is available, but the Bandstand does not offer water.
Grilling has long been a favorite activity in the park. In 1895, a barbecue pit operated during the Cotton States and International Exposition on the site of what is now Piedmont Park Conservancy administrative offices.
Today there are 22 grills provided throughout the park for your use and enjoyment. No portable grills are permitted in Piedmont Park. Thank you for utilizing the provided grills and helping us protect our beautiful park!
