Great cities have great parks. And at the heart of our great city lies the green heart of Atlanta — Piedmont Park. As Atlanta’s beloved public playground, Piedmont Park has been a popular gathering place for residents and visitors since 1887. Today, our great park has an even greater purpose, as an indispensable urban greenspace that brings value to businesses and homeowners and helps to clean the air and cool the city.

The Landmark Luncheon is not only one of our favorite events of the year, but one of our most important.  The Piedmont Park Conservancy, a nonprofit organization, raises $5 million annually for the upkeep, beautification and programming of historic Piedmont Park.  Many do not realize that the Conservancy relies heavily on philanthropic donations and does not receive funding from the many festivals and events held in the Park.

We are also pleased to announce that at this year’s event, we will be honoring our beloved CEO, Mark Banta, for his lifetime of work in greenspace and the legacy of his leadership here at the Conservancy. All past board chairs who have worked with Mark are joining together as Co-Chairs for this year’s event and hope you’ll join them in celebrating Marks legacy.
