A.D. Williams Park is 11 acres of play space where residents and dogs of west Atlanta like to hang. This family friendly neighborhood park is named after Adam Daniel Williams, an African-American social pioneer, and the maternal grandfather of Martin Luther King, Jr. It's the ideal place to pass through on your morning walk or jog with your pup, enjoy a family outing, play some sports or chat with the neighbors.
This park is located on the campus of Williams Elementary School, within the Brookview Heights neighborhood of Atlanta. Off street parking can be found adjacent to the park and just north of the A.D. Williams Recreation Center, at 1214 Northwest Drive NW. While only service dogs are allowed inside the recreation center, there is plenty more outdoor space for your and your adventure dog to explore together in the surrounding park. The park features a lighted soccer field, a ball diamond, a basketball court, playgrounds, and picnic areas. The picnic shelters can be reserved, and are a great location to host family get togethers, including the family dog of course!
Aside from family-friendly amenities, this park is adorned with lovely natural features that give it charm as well. You and your best pal can stretch out under one of the large trees and read a book. Your doggo will love to sniff and play on the huge grassy multi-purpose field. Running along the western edge of the park in the wooded area is the A.D. Williams Creek. This creek runs for about one mile long, and flows Northwest into Proctor Creek.
Doggos are more than welcome to enjoy this park with their humans, and you're likely to meet other fur-buddies as well. Please help keep this park safe and clean by abiding to the park rules. These include keeping your dog on a leash no longer than 6 feet, and picked up after at all times. Bring clean-up bags from home, and have water on hand.
A.D. Williams Park is the pawfect place to enjoy an outing with your four-legged friend.
