Whether you’re with a community or corporate group, volunteering in a park is a great way for you and your peers to give back to the community while promoting teamwork and healthy outdoor activity.
What to Expect
Park Pride custom coordinates a wide-variety of projects to create meaningful opportunities for groups interested in volunteering their time and efforts. From mulching and painting, to picking up litter and clearing invasive plants, volunteers take on a wide variety of beneficial park improvement projects. While each project and each park is different, there are a few things that you can always expect while planning or participating in a volunteer day with Park Pride:
- A highly organized and efficient volunteer experience in a park.
- Volunteer events take place any day during the week or weekend, and most projects last for three hours, usually from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
- Park Pride will provide tools and gloves.
- Knowledgeable staff on site that will provide project and safety demonstrations and answer any questions from volunteers.
- Lots of FUN!
To begin the process of setting up a volunteer project for your group, please first complete the form below:
Once we receive your completed form, Park Pride will confirm we received your request and to ask any follow-up questions. We’ll coordinate with our Friends of the Park groups, Atlanta BeltLine Adopter groups, and the appropriate parks department to determine what the most appropriate and beneficial project will be. Park Pride will develop the scope of work for your project, coordinate all appropriate materials, tools, and gloves, and offer day-of project management. All you have to do is show up and volunteer!
For smaller groups (up to around 40 volunteers, depending on the project scope), Park Pride has enough tools and gloves to outfit your volunteers free of charge. For larger groups, we rent tools from the Atlanta Community ToolBank and we ask the volunteer group to cover the nominal tool rental fee.
