In conjunction with the Atlanta Preservation Center's Phoenix Flies events, join us for a 90-minute walking tour of Grant Park. Learn about the history of LP Grant Park, its Olmsted design, fresh-water springs and one-of-a-kind historic structures on an easy, family-friendly stroll through the park. Hear fun facts about Atlanta’s oldest park and be the first to spot newly-planted trees. Also, learn about Grant Park Conservancy's role in its improvement and preservation.
This tour will also include a visit to Fort Walker, a Civil War encampment located inside the park which is the only surviving part of what was the strategic defense line of Atlanta. Meet at the south end of the Boulevard parking lot. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for this event or if you have any questions.
