From the Grant Park Conservancy web site:
Just behind the fountain you can see a granite and brick overlook (fenced and not accessible). This overlook, at one time, gave visitors a view of the lake and park. It is currently on the leased grounds of the zoo and is not open to the public.
More information on the
Judge John Erskine Memorial Fountain.

Atlanta Preservation Center purchased the lot behind the L.P Grant Mansion to return the Grant Mansion property to its 1906 boundaries. It then received a couple donations of historic artifacts from Atlanta's architectural past; a historic pieces from the 1902 Carnegie Library and 1892 Equitable Building have been installed as a permanent display on the lot. Here is the web page with more details.
While there are only two pieces thus far, it makes for a unique back yard. Here are a few photos of this place

Came home one night to drive past a movie shoot a block behind our house. The set-up of a Tyler Perry movie ("Family That Preys Together") in front of St Paul Methodist Church in Grant Park. I took a twilight stroll for a few minutes before dinner. The scenes shot here and inside the church went well into the night. View larger.
