Grant Park: Trees, Trails, History and Architecture

Map to Location

Join the Atlanta Preservation Center and Trees Atlanta on “Grant Park: Trees, Trails, History and Architecture,” a family friendly seasonal walking tour of historic Grant Park guided by Trees Atlanta.  Grant Park serves our community as Atlanta’s oldest park, donated to the City by Lemuel Pratt Grant in 1882 with the stipulations that “the land should be used for park purposes for all Atlantans.”  In 1903 the Olmsted Brothers landscape architectural firm was commissioned for the park’s design, which included significant detail on the proposed plant selections for the park.  Visitors will enjoy learning about the Park’s tree canopy—including its beautiful oaks, elms, maples and magnolias--and enjoying some of its historic and architectural highlights, including the Lion Bridge and the Milledge fountain, along with ongoing canopy and park restoration efforts by the Atlanta Preservation Center and other partner groups.

This tour meets at the corner of Sydney St. SE and Loomis Ave. SE.
