Amy Phuong
Interim Commissioner

The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) enhances the lives of City of Atlanta residents and visitors by offering programs, services and activities that encourage participation in recreational activities, leisure services and cultural experiences.

The department strives to deliver quality customer service through the development, operation and maintenance of the city's public parks, recreation and cultural affairs facilities to create an environment that is deemed safe, affordable and enriching for all.

DPR has earned the distinction of being accredited by the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA). This national accreditation by the NRPA is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a parks system and sets it apart from thousands of other
parks systems throughout the nation.


Vision
To make Atlanta the city of choice through exceptional spaces and
memorable experiences.

Mission

We are committed to building strong communities and a vibrant economy by providing safe and exceptional parks, facilities and programs through effective leadership, collaboration and innovative thinking.

City of Atlanta's 2013-2017 Strategic Plan for Parks and Recreation

centers of hope

In his first year in office, Mayor Kasim Reed fulfilled his campaign promise for the Department of Parks and Recreation to re-open all 33 of Atlanta’s recreation centers and turn them into safe havens where the city’s young people could receive academic enrichment, engage in physical fitness activities and learn character-building skills. The next step encompassed DPR transforming them into Centers of Hope with more in-depth programming, improved facilities and specially trained staff.

A Center of Hope is a high-performing recreation center with enhanced youth development.

The City of Atlanta has established and created 10 Centers of Hope.

1. Adamsville*
2. Adams Park
3. Ben Hill*
4. Bessie Branham
5. Grove Park
6. Peachtree Hills
7. Pittman*
8. MLK
9. Rosel Fann
10. Thomasville*

*Of the 10 COH, Adamsville, Thomasville, Ben Hill and Pittman are operated by the City of Atlanta in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.
