Description

Piedmont Park is located in the center of Piedmont close to shopping and restaurants. The play area is in what is called Excedra Plaza. Excedra Plaza is the heart of Piedmont with many community gatherings occurring here.

The park has a play area with two play structures, sand covering, lots of old shade trees, a community center, a Japanese Tea House, and two tennis courts. Between them, the play structures have one slide, a chain climbing net, and two tot swings. The play area is actually designed around an old oak tree.

What is so special about this park is the creek running behind the play area. Bushy Dell Creek was the site of a hotel and spa in the 1800's. Now it has the atmosphere of a dense redwood forest, but with a system of meandering paved paths following the creek downhill. Most of the paths are negotiable with a stroller, but can be quite steep. This truly is a beautiful, peaceful area.

Beware that weekday mornings during school days, the Excedra Plaza area can get quite crowded with traffic due to its proximity to Piedmont High and Middle Schools.
