ParkPride Meeting at Peachtree Hills Park Rec Center Tuesday November 8 7:30am

Free Doughnuts!

On Thursday November 8, from 7:30 a.m. (yup- a.m.) until 9am, Park Pride is hosting it’s monthly park enthusiast meeting at the Peachtree Hills Recreation Center. Stop by (it’s OK if you’re a little late), enjoy coffee and doughnuts, meet park supporters from other parks and have a chance to talk to Atlanta Parks Department staff about our park.

Let’s Get This Fixed

Over a year ago the Parks Department let the developer next to the park remove trees to make it easier and cheaper for them to install a storm water overflow pipe through the park. In addition to other requirements, the developer was to repave the parking lot and paint the Recreation Center. If you’ve visited the park lately, you know that hasn’t happened. Contact Parks Department architect Keith Hicks (404.546.6865, to find out when this will finally happen.

The Park Needs Your Help!

We’ve reported this wall for two years and it’s still broken. Our Recreation Center offers no programs for neighbors and if we want to meet there we are charged a fee (while folks from other counties use the gym for free). The Parks Department let a developer remove multiple trees.

But there’s hope! The City of Atlanta will soon hire a new Parks and Recreation Commissioner. This is OUR opportunity to advocate for our park, but to be taken seriously we need to have a large active membership. So, PLEASE be a hero and join/renew today!

Wall finally to be fixed…not!

Correction:  As of June 2, 2018, over a year since it was reported, the wall still hasn’t been repaired!

After over a year and multiple requests, the Parks Department has hired a contractor to fix the playground wall. If YOU notice an issue, contact Parks Customer Service at: or (404) 546-6813. Put the # in your phone; if after hours you can leave a message.

Mission accomplished: Friends of Peachtree Hills Park move mountains …

… of wood chips.

In response to a call to action from Betty to “Save your shoes!” from the mud that, of late, starts from the Hurst entrance of the park and extends to the parking lot, 7 Friends of Peachtree Hills Park spread wood chips from the twin peaks of mulch behind the rec center along the trail to Hurst.
