Time to dream big for the future of Atlanta’s parks and green space

Part 2: This is the second in a two-part series about Atlanta’s parks.

The next mayor of Atlanta ‚Äď whoever he or she may be ‚Äď should make parks and green space a priority as a way to counter-balance the anticipated increase in density as more people move into the city.

Atlanta’s environmental community has come together to make sure we preserve, protect, maintain and increase our city’s natural green assets.
