June 20, 2017: Area Surrounding Memorial Park Playground is Closed until Further Notice –
Due to heavy rain and rising water in Memorial Park, Watershed Management is disinfecting the area around the playground as a safety precaution. Although the playground has not been impacted, the surrounding area is temporarily closed to the public until further notice. We will provide an update when the process is complete.
On the second Thursday of every month at 7:30am, Park Pride brings together community leaders and park advocates from throughout Atlanta for education, networking and strategy. Representatives from dozens of Friends of the Park Groups, park conservancies and the parks department visit a different park to learn more about the community efforts in that park, discuss current park and greenspace issues and support each other in efforts to improve our parks and our park system. Join us on July 13 to hear the Atlanta Memorial Park Conservancy discuss the new playground at Atlanta Memorial Park.
When: Thursday, July 13, 2017, 7:30 am – 9:00 am
Meeting location: Atlanta Memorial Park Playground, 650 Wesley Drive, Atlanta, GA 30305
