Enjoy a Scavenger Hunt at Piedmont Park with Clue Town BooksFlag review
Clue Town Books is a fun way to explore Atlanta’s most famous park. It's a comprehensive scavenger hunt that leads you through the park hitting all the highlights and many often overlooked treasures. Each book comes with a pencil and compass and would be appropriate for most ages with a little assistance for the younger ones. They will love the mazes, word hunts and playing with the compass. Using the book as your guide, you can also spend a fun-filled day at the park. The hunt begins at the 14th Street gate, but I recommend parking at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens parking garage (check for seasonal parking times). A whole day costs $15 (less for less hours of hours of course), but you will not have to deal with crowds, tow zones and they have security at all times. You can walk right out the back of the garage (look for Piedmont Park levels within the deck) into the park and walk a short distance (many well labeled directional maps all along the walking paths) to the 14th Street gate monument.
Tips for Families
Park Tavern is a great restaurant that is right on the park. They have a good adult and kids menu, as well as a large patio. If you want, sit by the fence and let the kids run around the park on the other side. In the winter, Park Tavern has an indoor ice rink.

Piedmont Park is Atlanta's most famous park. It's located in Midtown and bordered (mostly) to the west by Piedmont Ave. and to the south by 10th St. It's huge, it's clean, and it's popular. The total size of the park is almost 200 acres. There's a lake in the center (Lake Clara Meer) and the park is home to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. There are lots of trees and big open grassy fields. Some sections are hilly, while other sections are nothing but several hundred yards of flat space. There are places to grill and hang out, play sports, and there are plenty of trails to walk or jog. The park also has very picturesque views of the Midtown skyline. The park is also home to many events such as concerts,...
I have fallen back in love with Piedmont Park. Not that I did not love it before, but I love it even more now. 1) parking deck- it is off of Monroe. I do not mind that it is is not free. It is covered, which means that my car stays cool in the summer heat. They also take credit cards for payment. 2) the new water addtion. For you who do not know, they added fountains like the ones you see at CP, but on a smaller scale. The are all the way at the end of the new expansion. They have bathroom facilities and a snack stand (it only takes cash). There is partially shaded areas to sit and a VERY nice short grass lawn, which is great for eating lunch on. The kids (and adults) love the cool water display t...
There was a time when we use to go to Piedmont almost every weekend, but the kids grew up, parking became a bigger pain in th arse, and there was no controlling people and thier dogs and so we began to go less and less until we werent going at all. Well somehow I convinced myself that going to the Atlanta Jazz Festival, which is held at Piedmont every year the Memorial Day Weekend. Im glad I did. While parking is still a "witch" (and I dont mean witch), and very costly at some lots, it is still a great park upon which to spend time with friends, family and lots to to drink. The pool area was lively with a private party. Not many people were following the rules of no glass containers, but I was really happy...
