Parks Need Your Support!

Calling all park advocates!

Advocating for atlanta's parks
An opportunity has presented itself to make our voices heard to improve the infrastructure and increase the safety of parks in the City of Atlanta. Mayor Kasim Reed has made a commitment to addressing the city’s infrastructure challenges and has invited the public to weigh in on proposed projects at a series of public information meetings.

There are several parks in Atlanta that suffer from lack of adequate lighting and well-maintained sidewalks; attend a public meeting and let our elected officials know that projects such as these must be a priority in order to create world-class parks!

More information on the proposed projects and the infrastructure bond that will pay for repairs and improvements can be found on the City of Atlanta’s website.
