In 2006, Atlanta City Council approved the Piedmont Park Expansion Project. Today, the first phase of the project is nearly complete. Upon completion, the project will add brand new access to Piedmont Park, which will make it easier than ever to access the park, and will also include an addition of 53 amazing green acres.

Final Stages of Atlanta’s Botanical Garden

Part of the plan included major changes to Atlanta’s Botanical Garden. As of now, most of the project is complete including a brand new visitor center, which is sure to be full of tourists and locals, and a spacious 800-space parking area. This parking structure is unique because it was built to LEED specifications. The only part of the project that still needs completed is the construction of the canopy walk. Visitors to the gardens will surely be impressed by the new Legacy Fountain, which features 70 jets, one million different configurations, and fantastically bright LED lights.

What Visitors Can Expect When the Project is Complete

Since the project plans to add an impressive 53 acres to its existing property, the park will offer many more exciting activities for Atlanta residents to enjoy. This is true because nearly 40% of the additional added property is usuable green space.

Piedmont Dog Park; is divided into two sections one for large breed dogs and the other for small dogs. To keep canine’s human companions happy, there are benches, restrooms, and trails that can be used as well.

Special Events can be held in several areas of Piedmont Park. Greystone has been converted into an event center, and at 9,000 square feet it is Atlanta’s only lakefront venue. Piedmont Park is an Atlanta treasure that anyone would like to call home. In fact, as the area continues to grow and become more beautiful, it will be an even more advantageous area to live.
