Park Pride’s  Parks & Greenspace Conference

Monday, March 27 | 9 A.M. – 5 P.M

Atlanta Botanical Gardens

Each spring, Park Pride hosts the annual Parks & Greenspace Conference, the largest parks conference in the southeast, to explore a selected theme about parks and greenspaces. It is a wonderful environment for networking with elected officials, community leaders, and park advocates who are driven to improve parks and strengthen communities.

This year Friends of Dearborn Park participated in the event

16th Annual Parks & Greenspace Conference:
Connecting with Parks

The 16th Annual Parks & Greenspace Conference, Connecting with Parks, will explored how parks and greenspaces bridge gaps between individuals, communities, political jurisdictions, and ecosystems to become places of regional importance. Whether a transportation corridor such as a green street, a linear park spanning several neighborhoods, or a network of parks designed to capture rainwater, our parks and greenspace serve a vitally important role in connecting us to the environment, to our neighborhoods, to commerce, and to each other.

Dearborn Park Trail: We hope that Path Foundation, City of Decatur and DeKalb County Park and Recreation department will meet to discuss how they can cooperate and make this happen in an environmentally sensitive manner. We hope that they will protect the ecoloc life, Shoal Creek and remediate the area.
