Woodruff Park Programs Return With Bustling Spring Lineup

From weekly classes to special events, all are invited to enjoy Downtown’s lush greenspace

 

ATLANTA (Month X, 2018) – Spring has sprung, and so has Woodruff Park! Beginning in April, Atlantans of all ages and interests will be able to enjoy a full lineup of free community programs that satisfy their appetite for activity.

Spring programs will feature the return of beloved favorites—Saturday morning yoga and twice-a-month history tours—with a few new opportunities.

Each Wednesday during lunch, “Wednesdays in Woodruff” will present a community partner organization that will facilitate an educational activity in the Reading Room. Partners include the American Diabetes Association, the Atlanta Women’s Poetry Collective, and Wonderroot. While some may just want to enjoy their lunch, others can enjoy a chance to learn about screenprinting, composting, blackout poetry, and much more.

And speaking of lunch, Woodruff Park is the new host of Downtown Atlanta’s popular Food Truck Fridays series, formerly held at Broad Street Plaza. On Fridays from May-July, Downtowners can enjoy the city’s best street eats from trucks stationed along the park’s Peachtree Street boundary. This lunchtime activation will also feature live music and plenty of seating and umbrellas.

Finally, for those who are lovers of board games and lawn games alike, Woodruff will keep its Game Cart, a mobile activity kiosk, open late on the first Thursday of each month. Each First Thursday will feature a themed game night—bingo night, trivia, retro game night—emceed by a master of ceremonies from the Village Theater.

Located at the crossroads of commerce, government, and education, it is a natural gathering space for a diverse cross-section of Atlantans and visitors.

ADID is responsible for the park’s daily upkeep and programming, as well as securing and implementing funding for future development.
