Welcome to Atlanta Green Spaces!
The Atlanta Greenspaces Team started from a passion for Atlanta and greenspace. The team has spent our years in the area enjoying the parks, the trees, and the community they bring together. In 2012, we hosted an urban scavenger hunt: The Champion Art Hunt. We partnered with the local street art movement, community organizations such as Trees Atlanta and Whynatte energy drinks and we reached our community through social media sites such as Twitter and FB. Atlanta LOVED it, as did the Atlanta Greenspace team.
In 2013, the Champion Art Hunt doubled in size. The event included cleanup walks, multiple partnering agencies, and over 150 pieces of art. As Atlanta continues greenspace oriented development through the Atlanta BeltLine and all partnering agencies, we have began to see much more activities related to parks and greenspaces. The East Trail has become a great transportation option for bikers and pedestrians to travel through Inman Park, O4W, Virginia Highlands, and Midtown. The energy efficient parks being developed around the BeltLine bring places for us to meet, workout, and spend time with the family. As the BeltLine develops around south and southwest Atlanta, it’s important for our community to continue to focus develop on the community of impact. Transportation is a necessity of all of us; Marta, the BeltLine, the streetcar, and even new proposed transit between Georgia State University’s Marta station and Turner field impact the way Atlanta moves around, gets to work, and works together. Throughout this process the GreenspaceATL team will work to provide up to date education for community members and events to bring the communities together around greenspace.
