April Streetcar Experience: Woodruff Park Stop
Each month, we hop off the Streetcar and explore the surrounding area by foot to give you a current listing of what’s happening at our spotlighted stop.
This month, we're highlighting the Woodruff Park stop, which drops you off at Downtown's central urban greenspace. Ride the Streetcar to grab lunch, stroll around the surrounding neighborhood, and enjoy the park's amenities.
Don't forget that, if commuting to Downtown Atlanta, the Streetcar often affords great last-mile connectivity. The Peachtree Center stop along the route is also your MARTA connection point.
Use the #StreetcarExperience tag when posting about your Streetcar outings!
Woodruff Park is filled with opportunities to enjoy activities that are free to the community, including bocce ball, table tennis, the fitness station, seating and free magazines in the reading room, and the iconic ATL sculptural playground - everyone's favorite place for a picture!
