There is much to see and do in the South Park area. The areas in and around South Park Mall are popular for walking and socializing, with plenty of green space, including Symphony Park located adjacent to the mall as well as surrounding live/work/ shop communities such as Morrison, Phillips Place and Piedmont Row.

Morrison Regional Library is a cornerstone for community activities in the area, with other gathering spots including the Harris Y and Harris Y Express, Quail Hollow Country Club (home of the PGA Wells Fargo Championship in May), and the Jewish Community Center and temples located close to the intersection of Providence and Fairview Roads.
