Our event is a non-competitive fun walk. The route is 1.2 miles long and stays on paved sidewalks inside Piedmont Park. The route is handicap accessible. There is one water station on the route and the walk passes three public restrooms. Please see the map below for this year’s walk route.
As an alternative to participating in the walk, attendees may enjoy exercise demonstrations adapted for people with Parkinson’s at the Movement Pavilion.
Participants are encouraged to arrive as early as possible for easy access to parking, and carpooling is encouraged. The parking deck next to our venue is shared with visitors to Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. If the parking deck is temporarily full, please look for legal street parking in the surrounding neighborhoods. Handicap, UBER, and Lyft drop off is still allowed.
Use the Piedmont Park SAGE parking garage located in the center of Piedmont Park. There is a ramp exiting the second level of the garage that connects directly to the venue. The SAGE parking garage rates are as follows:
|Drop-off period (0 – 30 minutes)||Free|
|31 – 60 minutes||$2.00|
|Each additional 30 minutes||$1.00|
|Maximum daily rate||$15.00|
The parking garage is accessible from Piedmont Avenue at the Atlanta Botanical Garden entrance and off Monroe Drive on Worchester Drive.
