Students will discover the wonders of nature right in the heart of Atlanta! Our hands-on programs include an educationally themed hike through Atlanta’s favorite park as well as unforgettable science experiments and activities that are sure to captivate students of all ages.

Run a little… raise a lot! Whether you’re a runner, a walker, or none of the above, come and enjoy the Piedmont Park Conservancy’s first ever .05k- a mad dash to and from Orpheus Brewing to enjoy your three complimentary beers.
There’s a world within the world of Mother Nature at Piedmont Park. Not only is Piedmont Park host to hundreds of events each year, there are over 200 acres of green space to enjoy. From Atlanta’s favorite festivals, Saturday’s Green Market and sports at The Active Oval to dogs running in the off-leash dog parks and children learning over in the educational garden, there’s always something to do at Piedmont Park. Start your visit at Piedmont Park with a sightseeing tour so you’ll know how you want to navigate your future visits. During the summer, enjoy a lakefront and resort style public pool. Stop by and visit Lake Clara Meer. Let the kids play over at the playgrounds or enjoy the Legacy Fountain splash pad. Also, if you love Piedmont Park and want to share this beautiful space with your friends and loved ones, you can rent one of the park’s unique and gorgeous private venues for your event.
With over 200 acres to get you moving, Piedmont Park is the ideal destination for fulfilling all of your fitness goals. A stroll in the park, or a jog, is always an invigorating and entertaining activity. Piedmont Park has miles of walking and jogging paths with water fountains scattered along the way. You’ll discover Piedmont Park is the place for all sports from bicycling and swimming to Bocce Courts, track and fitness classes; Piedmont Park activities can keep you fit.
The Bocce Courts complex is located in the Piedmont Park Greenway and consists of 2 regulation crushed granite courts.
Named one of the top dog parks by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Piedmont Park is a haven for dogs and humans alike! While a City of Atlanta ordinance requires all dogs in public areas to be leashed, Piedmont Park Dog Parks are one of the few metro-Atlanta locations where dogs may run free. This special three-acre off-leash area attracts more than 700,000 visitors each year.
The dog parks feature shaded areas, benches, water stations and nearby restrooms. The parks are 100% maintained by the Piedmont Park Conservancy, and relies on donations from the community and sponsors to operate.
Wake up on Saturday mornings to the famous Green Market! This farmers market serves Midtown and neighbors fresh, clean and local food. Shoppers experience live music and rotating activities while supporting farmers and local businesses. Also, come hungry! In addition to fresh produce and meats, you will also find delicious coffee, refreshing beverages and tasty prepared foods.
The Green Market is held on Saturdays from 9am-1pm, from March to December, inside the 12th Street and Piedmont Avenue Gate. Children’s activities are available. On-leash dogs are welcome.
Piedmont Park is one of the largest venues for outdoor learning experiences in the City of Atlanta! The Conservancy offers hands-on summer camp experiences focused on STEM-based topics and experiential learning as well as ongoing field trips for neighboring schools and groups.
The Park features an Education Garden and apiary to showcase how food grows and what the plants look like. Youth learn about natural and organic gardening methods. The Conservancy demonstrates how to utilize and cultivate beneficial microorganisms through composting, cover crops and good soil maintenance.
Visitors can also download printable PDFs to enjoy on their own and with groups in the Park including scavenger hunts, “I Spy,” and so much more.
