About the venue
Woodruff Park is located at 91 Peachtree Street NW, in the Fairlie-Poplar district. It is bordered by Edgewood Avenue, Peachtree Street, Auburn Avenue, and Park Place.
This six-acre park is a natural gathering space for a diverse cross-section of Atlantans and a key starting point for exploring downtown Atlanta and its surrounding neighborhoods. Surrounding buildings include government offices, commerce, and Georgia State University.
Originally known as Central City Park, Woodruff Park was renovated through a generous donation from Robert W. Woodruff, former president of The Coca-Cola Company. Today, the park offers playgrounds, fountains, and a variety of facilities and services.
The park is patrolled daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., through a partnership between the Atlanta Police Department and GSU Police, making it a very safe venue. The Downtown Clean Team helps with park maintenance.
Each year, Woodruff Park hosts a variety of festivals, events, and performances, including the WoodRUFF Bark Dog Parade and the annual German Bierfest.
Woodruff Park is easily accessible via both bus and rail. Two Atlanta Streetcar stops—Park Place and Woodruff Park—are located in the park. The park is also home to a Relay Bike Share hub.
