Great Parks Have a Great Impact

The mission of Park Pride is to engage the community to activate the power of parks. We provide the necessary tools to help create a park that fulfills their needs, and turns the park they have into the park they want.

What does your park or greenspace need to thrive?

Community Support

Friends of the Park

It is Park Pride’s mission to engage the community to activate the power of parks, and the formation of a Friends of the Park group is the most effective first step in creating positive and long-lasting changes in a neighborhood park. Learn More

Park Planning Assistance

Park Visioning

Our signature program, Park Visioning is quite unique — like no other program in the country. Led by professional landscape architects on Park Pride’s staff, a community is guided through a process that converts that community’s park dream into a conceptual but tangible master plan. Learn More

Volunteering in Parks

Volunteer Program

Every year, Park Pride coordinates approximately 16,000 hours of service. Whether you’re with a community group, a corporate group, or just an individual looking to help out in your neighborhood, 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.

Matching Grants

Grant Programs

From the smallest clean-up project to a full-scale park overhaul – or even building a park from scratch – Park Pride’s matching grant programs offer multiple options for communities in City of Atlanta and DeKalb County to go about creating and funding their ideal greenspace. Learn More

Garden Assistance

Community Gardens

Community gardens bring positive activity to parks. They provide a forum for neighbors to join together and forge strong community bonds. Community gardens help beautify the landscape and provide benefits to the environment, and they are a source of fresh, local produce – some of which shared with the community. Learn More

Fundraising Support

Fiscal Partners

The Fiscal Partners program enables community groups in Atlanta and DeKalb County to raise funds for new playgrounds, enhanced landscaping and other park improvements without having to go through the process of securing 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status. Through this program, Park Pride accepts tax-deductible contributions on behalf of neighborhood partners who are making improvements to their parks or public greenspaces. Learn More
