Mission & Values

The Power of Parks

Park Pride believes in the power of parks, and we help neighborhood groups make the best use of greenspaces that contribute to the overall health and well-being of Atlanta.

Park Pride Philosophy

Park Pride believes in the Power of Parks. Great parks have the power to increase our quality of life and strengthen the fabric of our cities. They are places for members of the community to gather, play, relax, and lose themselves in nature, encouraging mental and physical health. Great parks promote community engagement, safety, and revitalization. They spur economic development and benefit tourism. Great parks make our citizens happy, our communities strong and our cities sustainable.
