Best Parks in Atlanta

In all the conversations that I’ve ever been a part of or overheard, pertaining to Atlanta, the city always seems to be the setting of terrible traffic, highway shutdowns after one inch of snowfall, bad local sports teams, or crime. I had never heard anything very glamorous. But one of the city’s overlooked gems is its green space. The best parks in Atlanta not only run through the city’s heart, but can be found in all corners of this urban jungle, which by the way does have quite a lot of charm.
