Cabbagetown Park is a quintessential Atlanta park located in a central part of the neighborhood. It was once the location of an elementary school that was shut down in 1976. It's now a place where neighbors like to get together, enjoy some fresh air and exercise, or simply commune with nature. If you live in the area, it's a must to add to your route on your morning walk with Fido!
There is limited parking at the Cabbagetown Community Center located on the east side of the park, but you may be better off finding street parking or just walking over. Your canine will appreciate the extra time outdoors!
Once you arrive, you'll find limited amenities, but loads of charm. Some amenities include a wishing well and water fountains for people and pets. There are also walking paths that wind through the park, under shade trees, and around open grassy areas. Your doggo will love to dig their toes into the cool grass here! This family-oriented park also features some great playgrounds for the kiddos. If your stomach is growling, head over to Sweet Cheats just across the street, and enjoy your snack on a bench in the park.
There are some things that make this park stand out from the other parks in town. There is a magnificent grand Oak tree, that fans out wide and provides great photo opportunities, and some solace from the sun. The vintage concrete animals scattered throughout the park add their own kind of charm. The annual Chomp and Stomp Bluegrass Festival hosted at Cabbagetown Park brings neighbors together to enjoy a local chili cook-off, some great music and beer. Don't forget to swing by for some fireworks on the Fourth of July!
Your pupper is allowed to join you on all of these outdoor activities as long as they stay leashed and don't cause a disturbance. Please bring along some waste bags so you can pick up after your pal.
Overall, Cabbagetown Park is the pawfect way to spend some quality time with your four-legged friend.
