    It's not city or county land, so there's no Little League field or playground. But for those not encumbered with kids, LULLWATER PARK offers an intown oasis. Just beyond the edge of the Emory University campus between Clifton and Clairmont roads, the 185-acre privately owned greenspace has paved jogging paths, wooded trails and plenty of shade. There are also opportunities for wildlife watching in the wetlands and meadows and along Peachtree Creek, with its series of charming waterfalls. The park's centerpiece, 12-acre Candler Lake, draws fishermen, picnickers and students looking for a quiet place to read. And steady foot traffic ensures a certain level of safety. less...

    Perennially overshadowed by its flashier Midtown sibling, the 131-acre GRANT PARK has something of a split personality. On its western side, the city's oldest park offers a serene, leafy sanctum from the bustle of the city, with historic fountains, fresh water springs, ancient footbridges and restful nooks. In its middle are a popular soccer field, tennis courts, public swimming pools, a playground and a network of shaded walking paths. The open space along its eastern edge is the perfect setting for a summer's worth of cookouts and family get-togethers. Stir in a family-friendly zoo, the Cyclorama and the well-preserved Confederate Fort Walker, and you've got a park that perfectly reflects the diversity of the city around it. less...
