Parks in Atlanta besides Piedmont

One item on my summer bucket list was to visit three parks besides Piedmont Park (huge, very popular park in Midtown Atlanta). I love Piedmont and the views just as much as the next ATLien, but there are always people there! So my boyfriend has helped me with my mission to explore as many non-Piedmont, Atlanta parks as possible!

I had no idea that so many adorable parks with water, cool trails, and playgrounds existed inside the city. I wanted to share some of my new favorite spots with you and encourage you to try visiting them the next time you're looking for a quiet, beautiful environment. 

A photo of me at Tanyard Creek Park in Northwest Atlanta. This creek is a must-see and a hidden treasure. Check out a list of the great City of Atlanta parks below, along with their addresses! I bolded the parks I've been to :)
