Piedmont Park preserves the luxury of yesteryear. Designed in the late 1800s, the park's facilities have withstood the test of time with recreational halls that reflect the simplicity of its lush landscapes, and wetlands. Over the past 20 years, the Piedmont Park Conservancy has restored the park to its historic natural beauty, transforming a dilapidated space into a frequented green space. A slew of activities engage the community with outdoor programs ranging from environmental day camps to team sports such as soccer and softball. Park tours explore the history of the neighborhood and the weekly Green Market whets appetites with fresh produce from local farmers and thieving rabbits.
LEGOLAND Discovery Center gives kids a little round-headed person's view of the world, surrounding them with blown-up versions of normally miniature plastic environments. At the Atlanta park, children ages 3 and older—and their adults—tour a factory that makes LEGO bricks, travel through a dungeon blasting skeletons with laser guns, and build and test their own race cars on a colorful track. Visitors can also enter the 4D Cinema, where 3D LEGO films are enhanced with in-theater weather effects such as wind and snow. They can also look out over LEGO-brick recreations of the local city that feature scale models of landmarks, trains, and airships.
An exploration of the bright world of plastic bricks doesn't have to end at the attractions. In a Master Builder Training Academy, experienced LEGO architects pass on their construction tips to eager students. To continue the fun at home, shops at each location house hundreds of current LEGO sets.
