Mark Nelson is manager of Horticulture & Landscaping at Piedmont Park. The 181 acre park is sometimes referred to as the 'Central Park' of Atlanta. The land was originally owned by Benjamin Franklin Walker who, in 1887, sold it to the Gentlemen's Driving Club - which became the Piedmont Driving Club - and where the park got its name.
