Nestled in Eastside Atlanta, at the heart of one of Atlanta’s oldest areas, Grant Park provides a peaceful natural oasis in the middle of the city.
With over 130 acres, Grant Park is Atlanta’s oldest city park. It is home to miles of walking and jogging paths, along with Zoo Atlanta and the Atlanta Cyclorama & Civil War Museum. Visit the Historic Oakland Cemetery just a few blocks north.
Throughout the year, Grant Park hosts several of Atlanta’s famed festivals, including the Summer Shade Arts & Music Festival, the Halloween Lantern Parade, and the Pic’n in Grant Park BBQ & Music Festival. Each attracts thousands of people and provides fun for the whole family.
The Grant Park Farmers Market is open on Sundays in April through December, and features over 60 vendors, celebrity chef demonstrations, and special events.
Nearby Grant Park are some of Atlanta’s great restaurants and eateries, so if you need a bite, take a stroll down Memorial Drive or Boulevard.
