Have you heard about the new dog area at Piedmont Park?

The new Piedmont Dog Park is sporting a 3 acre dog run, separate areas for large & small dogs (nice!), trails and benches and bathrooms…oh my! It just opened 2 weeks ago and I recommend going with your furpals to check it out!!  The weather is a little cooler than when it opened, so use that area all you can Atlanta!
