Grant Park is Atlanta’s oldest park designed by John C. Olmsted of Olmsted Brothers, best known for designing Central Park. The park was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Make sure to check out the newly unveiled Gateway which overlooks the Savannah habitat at Zoo Atlanta and often has roller skaters showing off their skills on nice days.

Scenic, artistic, and a bit unusual: it’s one of Atlanta’s most unique hiking adventures. This multi-trail adventure at Constitution Lakes Park crosses paved paths, unpaved trails, and boardwalks through scenic, wildlife-filled wetlands, catching views of several small, marshy lakes. The Doll’s Head Trail, a short loop in the middle of this adventure, is an ultra-unique experience, a short hike through displays of bricks, toys, and tiles found at the park. The trail winds through the forest and exploring collections of found objects, washed from the banks of the nearby South River, now artfully and whimsically arranged in displays of folk art and culture.

Verkehrsmittel

Public transportation exists, but minimally.

MARTA is fairly limited in terms of where it can get you. Generally, expect to drive or ride share most of the time. The Beltline is a great option to get between neighborhoods, especially if you rent a bike or scooter.
