Park Pride, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1989, leads and inspires action for parks and greenspace. Each year, Park Pride coordinates more than 10,000 hours of volunteer work in Atlanta parks, develops new conceptual plans for neighborhood parks and helps start “Friends of the Park” groups. Park Pride is able to engage and serve the community by generating Friends of the Park groups, focusing on advocacy efforts as well as promoting participation in its Adopt-a-Park, Park Visioning, Volunteer, Fiscal Partners and Micro Grant programs. Park Pride continues to work with local organizations and community members to support the creation of the Atlanta BeltLine, which promises to create more than 1,000 acres of new parks and 33 miles of trails. The organization’s annual Parks & Greenspace Conference serves as the signature event in our work to create a world class park system in Atlanta.
