Join us for a 90-minute walking tour of Grant Park. Learn about the history of LP Grant Park, its Olmsted design, fresh-water springs and one-of-a-kind historic structures on an easy, family-friendly stroll through the park. Hear fun facts about Atlanta’s oldest park and be the first to spot newly-planted trees. Also, learn about Grant Park Conservancy's role in its improvement and preservation.
This tour will also include a visit to Fort Walker, a Civil War encampment located inside the park which is the only surviving part of what was the strategic defense line of Atlanta. Meet at the north side of the Grant Park Farmers Market, at the intersection of Cherokee and Milledge Avenues (for mapping purposes to locate the market, use this address: 587 Cherokee Avenue, 30312). We will conclude the tour at the Grant Park Farmers Market, a program of the Grant Park Conservancy, where you can purchase drinks, King of Pops popcicles, gorceries and other goodies.
