Adair Park Fall Cleanup and Cookout!

Fall is here, leaves will start changing, football is in full swing and now that it is cooling off a bit it’s time to roll up our sleeves and clean up Adair Park!

October 6th is the Fall Adair Park cleanup. We will meet in Adair Park II at the gazebo at the corner of Tift Ave and Gillette Ave. Breakfast will be provided from 8:30 to 9. From there we will split up into teams and head out into the neighborhood to pick up trash. We cover sidewalk to sidewalk. Latex gloves, garbage bags, some tools, water and snacks will also be provided. We recommend you bring bug spray, work gloves and sunscreen. We will clean the entire neighborhood until about noon. The city of Atlanta will provide a dumpster. This is a great way to not only show a presence in Adair Park, but to meet new neighbors while cleaning up our streets.

From there, everyone can head home and shower, relax, prep their items, and come on back for a cookout from 2pm-5pm! Or, if you can’t make the cleanup, just come to the cookout. Adair Park Today will provide hot dogs (beef and veggie), buns, condiments and bottled water. All eating utensils will also be provided. We ask neighbors to bring a side or dessert to share. Come join your neighbors in enjoying the fall weather, beautifying our neighborhood and meeting some new neighbors!

**Also needed – someone or some people to take pictures during both events. We need more photos on our website!

Adair Park Cleanup this Saturday!

Spring 2010 Adair Park CleanupIt is getting closer to Thanksgiving. What are we thankful for? A lot. Hopefully one of those things everyone here is thankful for is our incredible neighborhood. Adair Park has grown and prospered through porch parties, Easter egg hunts, activities for kids, various other gatherings and through simple neighbor outreach.

So, to show our thanks, why not clean up the neighborhood we love some? The spring cleanup started on the south end and almost made it through the entire neighborhood. This time we aren’t being quite so ambitious. The streets for cleaning are on the north end, from Shelton to Pearce and from Allene/Murphy to Metropolitan. The cleanup is this Saturday, November 19th. We will meet in Adair Park II (Tift Ave. parking lot) at 8:30 for breakfast and coffee, provided by Adair Park Today. Then at 9am we will split up into teams with some outside help and pick up trash on our streets.

This is a great event to get out and meet neighbors, both those cleaning and those you pass. And it makes our streets look so good! All you need to bring is yourself and some gloves. We will have tools from the Atlanta Tool Bank and trash bags. The City of Atlanta is providing the dumpster. If you have any questions, please contact us at either or We look forward to seeing you there!

Beltline cleans up dumping ground outside Adair Park

Adair Park dump site cleanedFinally, someone is doing something about the illegal dumping grounds that has been on the outskirts of Adair Park! This area, on Allene Avenue just south of Catherine Street, has been a blight to Southwest Atlanta and an eyesore for way too long.

Catherine Street resident Becky O’Mara was interviewed and, like the rest of us, is glad someone is finally cleaning this area up! Read the Fox5 story and watch the video here.
