Grant Park information
A large oasis of green situated on the edge of the city center, the park is home to Zoo Atlanta , which features flamingos, elephants, kangaroos and the odd tiger. But the zoo's pride and joy are the giant pandas. They tend to have cubs that slaughter you with cuteness. Be prepared to wait to see the cubs.
