This is to share that our 2022 Parks Survey is live! We would very much appreciate your feedback. This survey allows us to gain important insights and prioritize projects in our greenspaces and parks. It also helps us identify new volunteers and project leads to sustain the work.
We have several important questions on the survey, including feedback that Watershed Management needs to move forward on the AP1 Rain Garden Refresh and potential blacktop removal; renaming ideas for AP1 and AP2, and much more!
Please take time between now and April 15th to share your responses. Also if you can help get the word out/disseminate to neighbors we would be very appreciative! To that end, a graphic you may share is attached.
Between January and February, neighbors were invited to submit feedback on the proposed new design for Brookline Triangle Park. Thanks to a grant from the Transformation Alliance, the park will be renovated with new seating, plantings and educational components recognizing this land as the ancestral homelands of the Muscogee Nation.
“As a neighborhood dedicated to racial justice, it’s important that we honor the fact that Atlanta, including Adair Park, and much of Georgia rests on lands that the Muscogee Nation stewarded and were forcibly removed from,” shared Elise Blasingame, Parks Chair. The Parks Committee and the Muscogee Nation have worked closely to design elements that will honor the culture and legacy of the Muscogee Nation, which is now based on reservation land in Oklahoma. Representatives from the Muscogee Nation will be with us during the April Adair Park Today meeting to discuss the meaning behind elements selected for the park. Any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Atlanta’s first and favorite (and only!) pie festival is back on Saturday, September 24, from 12-5 p.m. The event is free, and includes family and kids activities, a pie bake-off and tasting, artist market, and more.
Calling all Atlanta Bakers
The bake-off is open to pastry chefs and home cooks presenting sweet and savory pies.
Entry fees start at $10 and both home bakers and professional pastry chefs can visit www.porchesandpies.com for details and to enter.
Pies entered in the bake-off will be judged by Chris Taylor and Paul Arguin, authors of The New Pie: Modern Techniques for the Classic American Dessert. Taylor and Arguin are winners of more than 500 baking awards (including the 2017 Best of Show Award at the National Pie Championships). Additional judges will be announced throughout the year.

I’d like to express the appreciation of the Board for your patience. It has been our goal from the beginning to conduct an efficient and transparent election process. With so many changes rapidly happening in the neighborhood, we wanted to make certain our process was fair and accessible to all voting members.
There was some concern expressed over the eligibility of the candidates. Those concerns were taken seriously and were thoroughly examined by unbiased board members. We feel confident about the conclusion and a process that made sure each vote was protected and counted. The bylaws successfully guided us through a fair and democratic process.
With that said, please find below the official results of the 2022 Adair Park Today elections!

Hello Neighbors! The team working to renovate the playground in AP1 has posted the renderings from the groups that submitted proposals in the small covered bench area by the playground during the last few weeks. The feedback they got was very helpful, and it seems this is the general rendering people liked the best. It has a large playscape for big kids, a smaller one for toddlers, a swing set bay and some shade elements to keep the playscapes cooler. We are exploring color options to fit the AP colors if possible. If you have feedback or questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Adair Park Today is soliciting proposals for playground equipment for Adair Park I in Atlanta, Georgia. This project is for removal of non-functional and/or outdated playground equipment in the park and replacing it with engaging playground systems staying within the existing footprint of the current playground.
