Come with me to explore a park with a lovely lake:
And interesting trees:
Places for picnics:
Where is this? It's the perfect place for an afternoon stroll or to while away an hour sitting under a tree with a book. It's a peaceful place, and you might be surprised that it is in downtown Atlanta with high rise apartments and office buildings a short walk away.
This is Piedmont Park. Earlier this week Lou and I visited our son in Atlanta, Georgia, and after lunch we went for a walk in this great urban park a few minutes from his house in Atlanta's Midtown. The 189 acre historic park has been around since the 1880s, and it was the site of the 1895 World's Fair. It has a track, a sports field, a pool, and even a dog park. I was reminded of how green spaces improve the quality of our lives and promote our well being. Its Lake Clara Meer is an oasis from the busy city that wraps around the park, and we enjoyed our leisurely walk.
It was a pleasant day. I hope you enjoyed it,too!
