Explore the Rich History of Woodruff Park During This Eye-Opening Local Tour
Dive into the rich history of Woodruff Park and the surrounding Downtown Atlanta district during this one-hour guided tour. This free tour is offered on the 1st Thursday and the 3rd Saturday of each month. The tour begins at the ATL Playground across from the Flatiron building.
Woodruff Park is one of Downtown Atlanta’s most significant green spaces, in the heart of the city’s financial, entertainment, and academic districts. An emerald lawn, plaza areas, a gazebo, and fountains combine to make this a flexible open space designed to accommodate large crowds, from students and office workers on their lunch hour and to attendees of large-scale special events like the Peach Drop.
The stories of Robert W. Woodruff Park and its surroundings touch on some of the most influential people and events of Atlanta’s modern history. From the Civil Rights movement to the birth and growth of the Coca-Cola Company, you’ll hear about the buildings that once stood in and around the Park, about those who bought and sold the property that is now part of the park, and major historical events that happened nearby.
Woodruff Park is easily accessible via MARTA bus and rail, and two Atlanta Streetcar stops—Park Place and Woodruff Park—are located in the park. The park is also home to a Relay Bike Share hub. The park does not have dedicated parking, but paid parking options, including lots, garages, and on-street parking, are nearby and plentiful. Consult the Atlanta Public Parking Map to explore your options. This is a free event, but an RSVP is required.
There is very little in this world that is more rewarding than a full schedule of leisurely and stimulating activities. At The Hamptons at East Cobb Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, we urge you to live life to the fullest and make plans to attend this highly-anticipated event!
