Numerous studies show that an excellent park system improves quality of life by promoting health, reducing crime, restoring the environment, maintaining habitats, and strengthening social ties. Park Pride’s visioning process plays a critical role in achieving this vision for every neighborhood in Atlanta.
Local businesses and corporations support Park Pride’s mission year-round, making a big impact on Atlanta’s local parks. Corporate groups can tap into team building opportunities such as custom, private volunteer projects to address urgent park needs while supercharging employee engagement. Shoutout to Georgia Power and The Clorox Company for giving back to local communities and parks this spring and summer!

From the smallest beautification project to a full-scale park overhaul, Park Pride’s Grantmaking Program awards funding to Friends of the Park groups for community-supported park improvements. Through the Parks for All campaign, we plan to grow our annual awards to $2.8 million by 2024, doubling investments in local parks and doubling impact for Atlantans across the city! The projects highlighted are among the first to be completed through the increased investment of Parks for All with support from grants awarded in 2022.
