Our Current Advocacy Initiatives
Increased Funding for Parks
Park Pride advocates for increased funding for park operations and maintenance in the City of Atlanta. In May of each budget cycle, we call on our most passionate park advocates to join us at City of Atlanta Council meetings to show support for an increased budget. Check Park Pride’s calendar for the dates/times/locations of budget hearings at Atlanta City Hall and other advocacy initiatives.
Greenspace Planing Initiatives
Park Pride supports the development of a greenspace plan for parks that prioritizes connectivity. Current planning efforts we currently engage in include the Citywide Design Project, the Westside Future Fund’s Plan Westside initiative, and the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation’s comprehensive park planning effort, ActivateATL.
