Atlanta City Councilmember Yolanda Adrean greeted residents and park volunteers at the Chastain Park Conservancy’s 10th Anniversary Celebration Breakfast on Tuesday, Feb. 4.

The keynote speaker for the event was Walter Reeves, ‘The Georgia Gardener’ and host of the WSB radio program “The Lawn and Garden Show.”

During this morning’s celebration, Park Pride presented a $500,000 check to the Chastain Park Conservancy for the Walk Chastain project, which will widen the PATH along Powers Ferry Road alongside the park and make it safer.

Founded in 2003, the Chastain Park Conservancy (CPC) is a volunteer, not-for-profit, organization dedicated to stewardship and renewal of Chastain Park’s natural and developed resources. The Conservancy is a grass roots organization whose Board of Directors and active volunteers are committed to reaching the parks full potential as a world-class source of recreation, entertainment and pride.

Working in conjunction with professional architectural, landscape and urban design firms The Conservancy is taking a leadership role in not only developing, but also implementing the City of Atlanta’s twenty-year Master Plan for Chastain Park.
