Pick Up and Pitch In for Piedmont Park

A lot goes into maintaining and enhancing Atlanta’s favorite urban green space! With more than 4 million visitors annually, we need your help to keep Piedmont Park beautiful. Pitch in by picking up litter in the park. Grab some gloves, a trash bag, and trash grabber; and head out into the park to keep the park clean and green year-round. Every stray straw, plastic bottle, bottle cap, and chip bag collected makes a difference!
