Long Description:
Piedmont Park is a haven for dogs and humans alike! While a City of Atlanta ordinance requires all dogs in public areas to be leashed, Piedmont Dog Park is one of the few locations in metro Atlanta where dogs may run free. This special off-leash area, open since 2002, is one of the most popular features of Piedmont Park. Piedmont Dog Park ranks #6 in the U.S. Best Bark Parks.

The waymark coordinates are for the dog park entrance. Parking coordinates can be found below.

Park amenities include water fountain, boulders for climbing & sitting, and Small Dog area.

After visiting the dog park, I highly recommend taking a walk around Piedmont Park. There are lovely views of the Midtown area, a lake, and lots of opportunities for people & dog watching.

Visit Instructions:
To log this waymark, you must be able to prove to the waymark owner that you were at the park in question. This probably means a photo. The photo must be identifiably at that park, so having your GPS in the photo might not be a bad idea (alternatively you may include a recognizable landmark)
If you have a dog, photos of your dog having a good time would also be appreciated.
