Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s largest free amenity used by millions each year for festivals, concerts and picnics with friends just to name a few.

Piedmont Park Conservancy is the nonprofit organization, working with the City of Atlanta for the preservation of historic Piedmont Park. Since our inception over 20 years ago, the Conservancy has successfully restored the historic portion of Piedmont Park. By 2010, the Conservancy will have raised and invested more than $64 million for park beautification, maintenance/security, programs, and also includes a 53-acre expansion of green

Centennial park: (http://www.centennialpark.com)

Today, this unique 21-acre park performs a dual mission: it serves as Georgia’s lasting legacy of the Centennial Olympic Games and it anchors efforts to revitalize residential and commercial development in Georgia’s capital city of Atlanta.

The Georgia World Congress Center Authority has operational responsibility for Centennial Olympic Park, as well as the Georgia Dome and Georgia World Congress Center.

The Park sponsors community-wide free events, including the Fourth of July Celebration, Wednesday Wind Down concert series and Fourth Saturday Family Fun Days. The Park also hosts festivals, fundraisers and private events. These events, in addition to the normal day-to-day traffic, bring an estimated three million visitors to this urban oasis each year.
