The Grant Park neighborhood was named for Lemuel P. (L.P.) Grant, a civil engineer for the Georgia Railroad who has been called the "Father of Atlanta." Grant Park, as a neighborhood, began to be populated in the 1890's. Craftsmen built many of the architecturally distinctive homes that are still there today. Grant Park is Atlanta’s first city park and within it has two major attractions: Zoo Atlanta, and the Atlanta Cyclorama detailing the 1864 Battle of Atlanta from the American Civil War. The zoo was added to Grant Park in 1889. The animals were a gift of Atlanta lumber dealer George V. Gress, who had purchased a defunct circus for the wagons and railroads cars and offered the animals to form Atlanta's first municipal zoo. The Cyclorama is the largest painting in the country, at 42 feet tall and 358 feet in circumference. The painting, The Battle of Atlanta, was placed on exhibit in 1892 and donated to the city in 1898.
Today the neighborhood of Grant Park welcomes over 2 million visitors a year and remains a popular place for Atlanta residents as well.
