If you’re in the Atlanta area with the furry members of your family, finding a spot for your dog to get some exercise is essential. While the city of Atlanta requires dogs to be leashed at all times in public areas, Piedmont Park offers an excellent space for your dog to explore off-leash.
With three acres of freedom, your dog will enjoy the wide open spaces that Piedmont Park has to offer. Large grassy expanses, shade trees, and trails make this a great area for exploration and a perfect space for your pet to run, play fetch, and make new canine friends. Safety for your pet will not be a concern, with separate enclosures for large (more than 30 lbs.) and small dogs (less than 30 lbs.). When the play is done, your pet can enjoy a drink from the dog water spigots and lounge in the shade. Pet owners can relax as well on one of the park’s many benches, while enjoying the Atlanta skyline views. If you’re visiting on a weekend, refuel with concessions that even your pet can enjoy, such as King of Pops with Dog Popsicles.
In the Area of Piedmont Park
The excellent dog park is just the beginning of activities on offer at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. Pack a picnic to enjoy at one of the covered picnic areas and stay for the day. Enjoy a walk or run on the network of trails throughout the park. The kids will revel in playing at the park’s two playgrounds, wading in the Legacy Fountain splash pad, and learning in the educational garden. In the summer, cool off at the Lake Clara shoreline or take a dip in the resort-style public pool. With its close proximity to downtown Atlanta, there are also a host of other nearby activities, shops, and restaurants in the area.
Piedmont Park is located about one-mile northeast of downtown Atlanta, between the popular Midtown and Virginia Highland neighborhoods. The dog park is located under the Park Drive Bridge and adjacent to the Education Garden and Six Springs Wetlands.
