Piedmont Park, Atlanta

In the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Piedmont Park has a surprising history unknown to most who enjoy it. It has served as a farm, a World War I encampment, a driving club, and as the grounds for the 1895 Cotton States and International Exposition - all before becoming a public park.

Over the years, this historic site has hosted many of the events that have helped shape Atlanta. Nearly 3,000,000 people a year visit Piedmont Park, making it one of the most heavily used parks in the southeastern United States.
