Wise Assistant plans for you. Have a park picnic at Shady Valley Park.

Located in the Pine Hills neighborhood of Buckhead, Shady Valley Park is an 11-acre piece of land. The park is truly one of a kind tucked away by giant trees whose boughs form a canopy shade, making it suitable for outdoor activities.

About Shady Valley Park

Shady Valley Park is situated just off of Shady Valley Drive between Buford Highway and Roxboro Road. The park is suitable for kids as there is a playground area with excellent playground equipment for fun.

The whole park is well shaded by tall, beautiful, and mature trees. This is a major plus considering how hot Atlanta is.

For lovers of sports, there is a large soccer field ideal for pick-up games. There is also a tennis and basketball court. The park has picnic benches and tables scattered all over, making it perfect for sitting with friends and grabbing a quick lunch.

There is also a nice little free library. You can grab a book to pass the time. Dogs are allowed within the parks but should be on a leash. A beautiful mural is just adjacent to the play area.

The only area of concern is there is no bathroom within the park, but there is a porta-potty.
