Clara Meer is the heart of Piedmont Park and its dock provides an unmatched view of the park’s serene beauty. Located near the 12th Street Gate, the rental space includes two contiguous areas: Clara Meer Dock and the historic Visitor Center building. Beautifully landscaped boardwalks and stone steps connect the two spaces. Secluded behind the Visitor Center and below the park’s main pathway, Clara Meer Dock forms an amphitheater-like space nestled into the western end of the lake.

Clara Meer dock is the perfect place for your wedding ceremony. And just a short walk through the park is Magnolia Hall—the ideal place to hold the wedding reception of your dreams.

The Piedmont Park Visitor Center is the perfect location for your smaller events. Rehearsal dinners, casual and formal events work perfectly in this space. The mural on the barrel ceiling adds a unique element to your event. The Visitor Center is included with your rental of the Clara Meer Dock.
