Tattnall Square Park Macon, GA

The park's peace fountain flows day and night, rain or shine.

Located in the heart of Macon and steps away from Mercer University's campus, Tattnall Square Park has become a hub for Macon residents to enjoy green space, intricate art and connect with one another.

Tattnall's unique space provides for a variety of groups to come together, whether it be a yoga class, Mercer students, tennis players or an exercise class, pictured above.

Arguably the most iconic Tattnall feature is the newly renovated peace fountain. After not working for 80 years, the fountain began to flow once again in December 2015.

The park boasts a beautiful fountain of peace, located in the back center of the park. Surrounding the fountain are benches, quotes etched in cement, and most recently, two campaigns of brick donations made by people all over the area.

Tattnall is obviously loved by many. A couple chose to commemorate a romantic moment in the park by purchasing a brick, laid outside the park fountain.

Various pieces of art can also be found throughout the park, created using a wide variety of media, colors and materials.

1) Two owls ornately carved out of wood wisely watch over visitors. 2) A life-sized thought bubble sits just steps from the peace fountain, collecting thoughts. 3) One member of the College Hill Bear Trail greets all who pass by on a neighboring sidewalk.

Whether you're looking to play a sport, observe wildlife, admire art or just enjoy a beautiful day, Tattnall Square Park offers it all. What are you waiting for?
