Who We Are

The Grant Park Conservancy (GPC) originated as a result of a group of concerned residents who recognized the need to protect Grant Park from the demands of a growing population increase, raise funds to independently carry out its mission and provide an enjoyable greenspace for families, visitors and residents of nearby neighborhoods.
The GPC also participated in the Grant Park Master Plan which was drafted 1997-1999 before being adopted by the Atlanta City Council. The Master Plan calls for massive renovations and improvements to the park over the next 15 years. However, there are no current plans in the City of Atlanta Bureau of Parks budget to fund these improvements. Thus, the GPC was born.

Modeled on other conservancy movements, the GPC will work independently and with the city to fully implement the Master Plan.
