Olmsted Linear Park
Olmsted Linear Park consists of five linked parks that wind through Atlanta. One end of Olmsted Linear Park is on the edge of Decatur, while the other stretches to Poncey-Highland. Olmsted Linear Park connects to Candler Park and Grant Park, along with Fernbank Museum.
The easternmost section of the park near Decator is Deepdene, which features walking trails under a dense wooded canopy and a stream that flows through Deepdene’s 22 acres. The westernmost park is Springdale, where visitors can enjoy a green oasis, lush oak trees, and fields.
When you visit Atlanta, make time for a walking tour of the city. Stroll through Atlanta’s parks alongside creeks and beneath trees, and visit attractions like the Fernbank Museum, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, and Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.
In the Fall and Spring, Olmsted Linear Park hosts The Festival on Ponce, which brings arts and crafts vendors, music and delicious food to the park.
