These are Some of the Best Family Outdoor Activities in Atlanta

As an Atlanta, GA native, Jonathan Kimpson loves to tell other people about some of the fantastic locations to visit and events to attend with your family. Today, he’s here to share his love for this city and break down Atlanta’s best family outdoor activities!

Truist Park

A great way to relax in the warm summer sun and get some fresh air is by sitting outside at an Atlanta Braves game at Truist Park. They offer several types of ticket packages to accommodate your family’s size and needs. In addition, the stadium includes several restaurants and moveable concessions with all your favorite ballpark cravings and more than ten stores to check out new merch. Depending on the date and time of the game, you might also receive free giveaways, and enjoy a free pregame live music concert or firework shows after the game.

If you’re looking for something fun to do as a family when the Braves aren’t in town, then you can visit Truist Park for its other events. From behind-the-scenes stadium tours to local community events and even concerts from some of the biggest bands – there’s always something fun to attend.

Atlanta Botanical Garden

The stunningly beautiful Atlanta Botanical Garden is best described on their website when it states: “The Garden is an ever-evolving destination where the horticulturally-minded, nature-inspired and fun-seeking families come together to feel human again.” With 30 acres of outdoor gardens set across different viewing settings, your family won’t be short of amazing sights during your visit. 

Ticket pricing begins at $22.95 for adults and $19.95 for children on weekdays and increases by $2 each accordingly for weekend visitation. You must purchase your tickets in advance for a specific date and time frame of your visit. If you would like to buy a ticket option with more flexibility for the date, you can select the “Flex” ticket options for an additional cost. When booking your visit, be sure to check out the garden’s schedule for special exhibitions and events.

Zoo Atlanta

What better way to enjoy time outside together than by visiting with animals? Zoo Atlanta is one of the most famous family day trip locations in the area and always offers a fun time for the whole family.

Weekday pricing is $27 for adults and $21 for children, with a price increase on the weekends. There is a discounted price for both Seniors and College Students, and Veterans and Babies receive free entry. You must purchase your tickets in advance for a specific date and time frame of your visit.

There are family-fun activities around the zoo, available for an additional price, including behind-the-scenes tours, the Zoo Train, and the Endangered Species Carousel. Like the Botanical Garden, the Zoo is frequently hosting events for kiddos and parents alike, so check out their event schedule when planning your visit.

Piedmont Park

If you don’t have time to travel anywhere else, you have to make plans to visit Piedmont Park. The vast 185-acre park is full of fun activities for the whole family: 

  • Nature trails & hiking paths
  • A 3-acre Dog Park section
  • Walking History Tours
  • A resort-style pool is available for $5 per person
  • Multiple food and beverage concession stands

If you’re looking for a relaxing day enjoying the beautiful Georgia weather, then Piedmont Park will surely deliver.
