Have Fun in the Sun at Piedmont Park: Ultimate Summer Bucket List

Are you looking for something to do this summer besides sitting at home? If so, then search no longer. Piedmont Park offers many exciting outdoor activities to keep you engaged all summer long. Here’s a few things to scratch off your bucket list:

1. Sweat on the Volleyball Courts on Free Play Fridays

Invite your family or friends for a fun game of volleyball in the Park. The Active Oval has two sand volleyball courts open for reservations every day except on Fridays. Otherwise it is first come, first serve!  https://www.piedmontpark.org/things-to-do/sports/

2. Hit Your Stride on the Track in the Active Oval

Whether you’re an early morning runner or late night jogger, the Active Oval is perfect for you. A former horse track, this location is great for exercise. Whether you sweat it out on the track or field there’s always a way to stay fit in the Park.

3. Bend it out at Yoga on the Promenade

Who knew getting in shape could be so peaceful? Every fourth Monday of the month, the Piedmont Park Conservancy along with Sprouts Farmer’s Market is offering free yoga to visitors like you. So, grab a mat and meet at the Promenade by 7PM! https://www.piedmontpark.org/fitness-health/

4. Make a Splash in the Pool with Your Friends

Wondering how you’re going to survive the summer heat? The answer is the pool. With temperatures rising each week, it’s important to stay cool. Join your friends at the pool this season from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. https://www.piedmontpark.org/aquatics-pool/

5. Pitch in to Volunteer at the Park

If you have a desire to help the community and make an environmental difference, then become a volunteer. The Park relies on thousands of volunteers to assist with preservation and restoration, special events, tours and more.

6. Meet Your Local Farmer at the Green Market

Most park visitors who workout care about what they eat, too. If this is you, then stop by the Green Market on Saturdays from 9AM to 1PM. The market connects you to local farmers, fresh produce,chef demonstrations and more.   https://www.piedmontpark.org/green-market/

7. Bring Your Pup to the Dog Parks

It’s been said “dogs are a man’s best friend”. What better way to treat your best buddy than to a play date? The Park provides three acres for your furry friends to run off-leash until tired. Come visit with your pet this summer! https://www.piedmontpark.org/dog-parks/

8. Connect with the Outdoors at the Conservancy Naturalist Booth

Do you like being outdoors? If so, then visit the Naturalist booth this summer. The booth is a fun, educational way to interact with visitors by providing useful information about nature, bees and the environment. The best part is, it’s free!

9. Grab a Bite and Hear the Music of Green Market’s Live Bands

Not only does the market provide sustainable food options, but also entertainment. Visitors that enjoy a good time should arrive at the Visitor’s Center by 10AM on Saturdays to watch live performances by talented musicians. https://www.piedmontpark.org/green-market/
