Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic throughout 2020-21, Atlantans took to parks, trails, forests, and our rivers and creeks for refuge, fresh air and sunshine, and to combat social isolation (safely and at a distance). Parks and recreation centers further served essential functions as food distribution points, testing sites, and distance learning centers. These flexible urban greenspaces emerged as critical infrastructure—cornerstones of our community—that contribute to the resilience of our city.
Now more than ever, greenspace is recognized as a vital component of a healthy, equitable, resilient, and thriving future Atlanta.
As Atlanta continues to grow and develop, prioritizing accessible and wonderful greenspace is necessary to maintain and enhance the quality of life for all Atlantans. Through this Mayoral Forum on Greenspace, we aim to learn how each candidate’s administration will value and approach Atlanta’s natural spaces, trees, waterways, and parks and recreation system in the years to come.
