Have you been to either? Piedmont is the largest park in the city and has more variety in things to do.

Piedmont Park Conservancy

The answer is 'yes'--apples and oranges. 'Centennial Park' is not actually a park.

The misconceptions people in this area have of Atlanta boggle my mind sometimes. Piedmont Park is very nice - I live right near it and have never felt unsafe and I've never heard of anyone getting robbed there. I go for runs through the park pretty frequently too. The whole park has pretty much been renovated and they are expanding it by 50 acres. You should go check it out - you'll probably be surprised.

I can't improve on Mike's response.

The link I provided in my previous post should answer most questions.

Come and see for yourself.

I live near the park, and I think it's great. Places to picnic, huge dog park, playing fields, lake, and when it snows (about once a year) there are hills to slide on. From spring to fall there are festivals to go to and a produce market on Saturday mornings (from May to December).

'Apples and Oranges' were exactly the words that came to my mind. And I agree that Centennial Park is not a park in the traditional sense; it's more like a plaza (think of a newer version of the Piazza de San Marco in Venice or the Placa Catalunya in Barcelona). That fact in no way diminishes Centennial...it's a huge asset to downtown.

I agree. I think Centennial Park is a nice little pocket park with some nice green space and fountains. But Piedmont Park is a true city park, with running paths, dog parks, huge green space, a pool, playing fields, etc. Every Saturday (or is it all weekend?) there's an artist market (or is it only in the warmer months?).
