Volunteering in Parks

Volunteer Program

Throughout the Cities of Atlanta, Brookhaven, and Tucker, and unincorporated DeKalb County, folks are coming together to make significant improvements to their public parks.

Park Pride’s volunteer workdays have been temporarily placed on hold due to safety concerns around COVID-19 and large group gatherings. We are working hard to adjust so that we can resume programming with modified procedures to protect volunteer and staff safety. We will be monitoring public health information and following guidelines from the CDC, as well as the City of Atlanta’s phased reopening plan.
