Historic Park Tours are held every Saturday of the month May through December. Learn about the history of Piedmont Park and get a little exercise, by joining a Piedmont Park Education Docent for a guided walking tour of Piedmont Park. Tours last 60-90 minutes and cover all phases of the parks development over nearly two centuries. Discover the story and evolution of Piedmont Park s landscape as it changed from a forest to the Walker farm, to the fairgrounds for the Piedmont Exposition of 1887 and the Cotton States and International Exposition of 1895, to the transformation of the fairgrounds into a suburban park, culminating with its current status as Atlantas premier urban park. Meet at the Green Market Information Booth, located near the 12th Street park entrance.
