Hope Springs Eternal in our Neighborhood Parks

At a time when so many in Georgia are drawn to the healing power of nature, this moment draws sharp attention to the reality that nearly 30 percent of Atlanta residents do not have easy access to a quality park. Across the country, 100 million people—including 28 million children—don’t have a quality park within a 10-minute walk of home. We know that our communities are resilient, and life will return to normal eventually—and when it does, we’ll have a unique opportunity to once and for all ensure that every person, in every neighborhood, has access to a great park.
