About this event

Grant Park is Atlanta’s oldest park and was donated to the City by Lemuel Pratt Grant in 1882. Visitors will enjoy learning about the park’s trees and some of its historic and architectural highlights, including the Lion Bridge and the Milledge and Erskine fountains, all recently restored by the Grant Park Conservancy. The Conservancy also cares for the park’s tree canopy (including its many oaks, elms, maples and magnolias) with ongoing canopy and park restoration efforts. Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Preservation Center are pleased to partner with the Conservancy to support their work in the park.

Tour Docent: Kathy Brennan, Trees Atlanta Docent and Grant Park neighbor.

This tour is in partnership with Trees Atlanta.
