Piedmont Park, the focal point of Midtown expands over acres. Surrounding the park to the west is Midtown’s business district, Ansley Park
to its northwest, and the Historic District to its south. Joining Piedmont Park to the north is the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The park has become a popular venue for cultural festivals, and every spring,when the dogwoods are in bloom, an arts and crafts fair happens. Other events that happen at Peidmont Park include Festival Peachtree Latino, celebrating Hispanic-American culture. The park has basketball courts, tennis courts, running trails, and kid-friendly areas.
A 22-miles trail circles the older neighborhoods in the area and connects to Piedmont Park. The “BeltLine” has had dozens of contemporary art pieces installed along the trail.
