Best Intown Park: Grant Park

Staff Pick

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.
