“Great parks are an essential ingredient in great cities. Piedmont Park is the green heart of Atlanta, and our city is blessed to have it. We must commit to being good stewards of its preservation.”
Arthur M. Blank
 

Seeing Change in Piedmont Park
In 2006, Atlanta City Council approved a revised master plan for Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Included in the plans was the redrawing of Atlanta Botanical Garden’s lease line that incorporates one acre of a hillside in exchange for three acres of the Storza woods, which will return to Parkland.

The Conservancy is utilizing the returned three acres of woodlands to access the northern part of Piedmont Park and now is in the process of expanding the Park by 53 acres, a 40 percent increase in useable green space. View the "Breaking New Ground" video: standard-bandwidth, high-bandwidth.

Atlanta Botanical Garden is in the final stages of its master plan. They have completed the new visitor’s center and the 800-space parking facility that was built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. Construction of the canopy walk is still underway.
