July 28, 2021:

Prior to Piedmont Park’s opening this morning (July 28), there was a fatal incident inside the Park near the Charles Allen gate. The Piedmont Park Conservancy is deeply saddened and our hearts go out to the individual’s family and loved ones.

The park is currently open. The Piedmont Park Conservancy is in communication with the City of Atlanta and APD. This is an ongoing investigation.

We encourage anyone in our community to please call 911 if you have any additional information.

Official inquiries should go to the Atlanta Police Department at 911 or email their Public Affairs office at: apd-publicaffairs@atlantaga.gov.
