What We Do
Our mission is to provide programs, funding and leadership to engage communities in developing and improving parks and greenspaces. To that end, we empower grassroots efforts through:
1) Partnering with more than 70 “Friends of the Park” groups – community-based partners working to improve the greenspace in their backyard
2) Coordinating more than 15,000 hours of volunteer service with the support of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, in City of Atlanta and DeKalb County parks each year
3) Working with communities to develop conceptual plans for their parks through our Park Visioning program
4) Engaging and serving the community by focusing on advocacy efforts as well as getting people involved in our Adopt-A-Park, Community Gardens, Adopt-the-Atlanta BeltLine, Fiscal Partners and grant programs
Through our programs, advocacy efforts and community engagement we will realize our vision of great parks that reflect the unique character and meet the needs of every community.
