ATLANTA -- Park-goers at Piedmont and Grant Parks will be able to connect to free Wi-Fi networks, provided by the City of Atlanta, from their mobile devices and laptop computers.
Mayor Kasim Reed announced on Tuesday that the parks were equipped with Wi-Fi, which the City of Atlanta says "advances Mayor Reed's goal of making Atlanta a leading technology city."
Park visitors will be able to access to networks from anywhere in the park.
The networks were designed by the city's Department of Information Technology. Visitors accessing Wi-Fi services in Piedmont and Grant Parks can connect by selecting the "CofAtlanta-Piedmontpark" or "CofAtlanta-Grant" network in their Wi-Fi settings.
"With this new initiative, we have made a targeted investment to improve our city's wireless infrastructure and expand Internet access," said Mayor Kasim Reed.
"As Atlanta continues to grow as a global hub of technology and innovation in the 21st Century, we must find ways to support and drive technological advances. This initiative moves us forward on the path to constant connectivity."
