Glover Park at the Marietta, Georgia Square, Christmas, 2012 2
Atlanta

During the Civil War, the Glover Park was used as a training ground for the militia. On the north end of the park a well provided water for thirsty people with a trough for horses. In the early 1900's the Atlanta trolley was run to Marietta and the trolley would turn around by circling the park. At Christmas time the bandstand area is taken over by elves building a home for Santa Claus.

More About Atlanta

Capital and largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is known the world over for its parks, professional sports teams, shopping, museums, and entertainment. One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Atlanta has been commended by the Environmental Protection Agency for its determination to implement ecologically friendly policies. Unlike many other Southern cities, Atlanta broke with its historic Old South architectural characteristics and opted for a progressive modern style led by native Atlantan John Portman, who created the atrium hotel in 1967 when he designed the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
