About Us

The Grant Park Conservancy (GPC) began as a group of concerned Atlanta residents who recognized the need to protect Grant Park, Atlanta's oldest city park, from the demands of growing use and declining maintenance. During an updated master plan process commissioned by the city of Atlanta Bureau of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs this group realized that the impetus to implement the new plan would come only from concerned citizens. The Conservancy was formed and now works to raise funds to carry out its mission and provide an enjoyable greenspace for families, visitors and residents of nearby neighborhoods.

The Master Plan calls for massive renovations and improvements to the park over the next 20 years. However, there are no current plans in the City of Atlanta Bureau of Parks budget to fund these improvements.

Modeled on other conservancy movements in Atlanta and cities across the country the GPC will work independently and in partnership with the city to fully implement the Master Plan.

The Grant Park Conservancy recognizes the importance of usable, friendly, clean, safe, well-maintained green space in the urban environment and works to provide a public space in which the city can take great pride.

As part of the annual Arbor Day Celebration, Trees Atlanta presented its 2004 "I Believe in Trees" award to the Grant Park Conservancy.
The Conservancy teamed up with Atlanta advertising agency, ComGroup, to create a series of posters to increase awareness about the many challenges facing this urban green space. ComGroup was recently recognized for its design through inclusion in Print Magazine's Regional Design Annual + received 4 silver and 4 bronze ADDY awards.
