Carriage-drawn tours make sightseeing easier, since the gravitational pull of large, rotating wheels draws landmarks nearer. Employ gravity as Newton intended with today’s Groupon to Piedmont Park Conservancy. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a carriage ride through the park for two people (a $40 value).
- For $40, you get a carriage ride through the park for three to five people (up to a $100 value).
This Groupon offers a family-friendly experience, allowing infants under 12 months to ride free.
Elegant carriages enthrone duos or basketball teams on evening jaunts through Piedmont Park’s twinkling holiday lights and verdant scenery, with proceeds going to help the Piedmont Park Conservancy’s efforts to give all Atlanta residents green space in which to play and relax. The rides treat visitors to seasonal vistas of light-strung historic structures and reindeer rest stops juxtaposed with the towering heights of Atlanta’s skyline, granting guests a charming 20-minute interlude through the park. Available every 10 minutes from Magnolia Hall or Park Tavern between 5 and 10 p.m., the cozy carriages set off to the clips and clops of horses’ heels that glide along the paved pathways winding through the park. These merry carriage excursions offer a scenic way to celebrate the holiday season and run rain or shine, but like Frosty the Snowman’s work visa, carriage rides end on New Year’s Day.
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.
