Other Activities and Things to Do in Piedmont Park

Piedmont Park has countless activities you can do in the green heart of Atlanta. Here are a few more ways to use Piedmont Park for your next visit!

  • Fishing

    Since Piedmont Park Conservancy renovated Clara Meer in 2002, fishing in Piedmont Park is even better. The new bridge unifies the two parts of the lake into a single body of water and an aeration system improved the water quality. There are three new fishing piers and the dock making it easier than ever to find the right spot.  The lake is routinely stocked with fish, including Large Mouth Bass, Crappie, Bream and Catfish, and attracts anglers of all ages. A valid State of Georgia fishing license is needed to fish in Piedmont Park. Please note, all fishing is catch and release.

  • Biking

    Piedmont Park is a Relay Bike Share site. Reserve a bike through your phone, and then enjoy the ride! There are miles of roads and paths through the Park that are bike and wheel friendly.

  • Community Garden
