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.
And like all hearts, the Green Heart of Atlanta needs some love. This year’s Landmark Luncheon will celebrate the Park’s significant contributions to the health of Atlanta, where the Future is Green.
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 $3 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.
