What To Do
Free live music isn’t the only reason to enjoy your time in City Springs. You can set up a cozy spot on the green with a picnic blanket and chairs to soak in the spring and summer weather. You can also sip drinks on the swings overlooking the fountains and stroll around the sculpture garden. Bringing some high-energy kids with you? Grab a ball or a disc to throw around before the green gets too crowded, or take a short walk down to Heritage Sandy Springs to have a little more room to run around.
Where To Eat
City Springs is home to a wide variety of food and beverage options for guests. Not only will the city’s own CityBar be selling drinks, but they are also bringing in popular local food trucks for each show. City Springs is also home to onsite restaurants Flower Child, The General Muir, Nam Kitchen, and The Select. Other eateries like Slope’s BBQ, Brooklyn Café, and Zafron are just a short walk away. If you want to dine at a restaurant, we highly recommend securing a reservation. If none of those options strike your fancy, you could also pack your own picnic and dine on the green as the music plays!
