Piedmont Park

run in piedmont park

Piedmont Park is the Crown Jewel of central Atlanta running scene. The 189 acre park was designed by Olmsted’s sons and features 4–5 miles of fairly hilly paved and gravel running trails, ranging from open meadows to wooded sections. We’ve included a 4-mile ‘signature’ run, but also a trail map so you can put together your own route. Highlights include the “Active Oval”, The Meadow, and Oak Hill.

It’s also possible to add to your run in Piedmont Park by accessing the BeltLine trail which intersects the park at 10th St.. The residential areas near the park are also pleasant for running, featuring fine older homes. Try to stay in Midtown, which has great hotels and restaurants, and provides the best access to the Park.

  1. Having read this I believed it was extremely informative. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this
    informative article together. I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Great work!
