Exploring Atlanta doesn’t mean you need to be cooped up indoors in shops and museums, because Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is within walking distance of one of the city's best parks. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel sits about half a mile from Piedmont Park. Situated between 10th Street and Piedmont Avenue, the 180-plus-acre park features lush woods, Lake Clara Meer, picnic spots, skating paths and many annual events.
In the spring, don’t miss the Atlanta Dogwood Arts Festival at Piedmont Park. It’s one of the city’s largest festivals; more than 250 artists from around the country exhibit in 12 categories, including painting, glass, clay, wood and mixed media.
During the month of June, “Screen on the Green” is Piedmont Park’s gift to the city, shown in the Meadow, the southeast corner of the green space. Pack a picnic and relish film classics with locals. This is a pet-free event and no glass containers are allowed.
Piedmont Park also joins the Atlanta Botanical Garden, one of Atlanta’s most breathtaking attractions. Enjoy 30 acres of forests and wildflower trails and a 10,000-square-foot Fuqua Orchid Center. Photo opportunities abound, so be sure to saunter along the garden’s Canopy Walk.
