Park Pride, the Atlanta-based nonprofit that engages communities to activate the power of parks, is hosting our 15th Annual Parks and Greenspace Conference on Monday, March 21st with the theme Parks & Play: A Conversation for All Ages. As the density of Atlanta increases, this is an important conversation as it speaks directly to the quality of life that residents experience in "playfully" designed cities that fully utilize their greenspace assets - I think this is a topic in which all Atlantans have a stake!
We're hosting several well-known national speakers in the industry, as well as local parks and play experts including Rosa Mchugh from the Chastain Park Conservancy, Cynthia Gentry, founder of Play Atlanta, representatives from the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, and so many more.
Register before March 14th - that is when late registration ($175) kicks-in.
We do offer scholarships through City of Atlanta Council Members and DeKalb County Commissioners. You can let people know that they should reach out to their elected official to be nominated for a scholarship ($50 registration).
