Grant Park sits in a historic district of turn-of-the-century homes and contains a large public pool, wooded paths, playgrounds, tennis courts, Zoo Atlanta and more. The park is also home to the Summer Shade Festival that takes place every August.
The closest station to Grant Park is King Memorial on the blue/green rail line. Plan for a 15 minute walk to the edge of the park and another 20 to walk the length of the park itself (see walking directions and map). Otherwise, you can take bus 32 from the Five Points or Civic Center station. This route also connects to the Georgia Aquarium if you want to combine attractions.
- If you decide to walk from the King Memorial Station, there are several restaurants on the way including Augustine’s, Tin Lizzy’s, Ria’s Bluebird and The Republic if you want to break up the walk with breakfast, lunch or dinner.
- Use extra caution if walking after dark, and bus is preferable then.
- Look up bus schedules ahead of time to plan your trip. Printed bus schedules are available at the Five Points Station or download the MARTA app to have all schedules with you on the go.
