Letter from the Mayor

I am proud to present the City of Atlanta’s Department of Parks and Recreation’s (DPR) 2014 Spring Program Guide. Investing in our community through strategic partnerships is a top priority for the City of Atlanta, and DPR has done an exceptional job forming partnerships with organizations that share in its vision to make Atlanta the city of choice through exceptional spaces and memorable experiences. In last season’s winter guide, I announced that we have transformed ten of our recreation centers into Centers of Hope. Of the 10 Centers of Hope, Adamsville, Thomasville, Ben Hill and Pittman are operated by the City of Atlanta in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA). Together, this partnership has significantly increased enrollment numbers for afterschool, and now we currently serve over 1,000 kids each week. These centers continue to provide our children with safe and structured environments for learning and recreation. With your continued support, we will continue to expand programming so that children all across our city can enjoy these opportunities. This spring, DPR will focus on health and fitness through innovative partnerships and programs, including our new Troops for Fitness program. Through this program, the Office of Recreation employs military veterans, who serve as fitness and wellness instructors to lead residents in active lifestyles with free fitness classes at select Atlanta recreation centers. On behalf of the City of Atlanta, I encourage our residents to take advantage of these free classes and the many other exciting opportunities our city has to offer. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely,

Kasim Reed Mayor of Atlanta

Letter from the Commissioner

Greetings: Spring is upon us and the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is pleased to present another season of enriching and exciting programs and activities. The spring season is the perfect time to get out and enjoy DPR’s parks and outdoor activities. Providing a healthy lifestyle for residents of Atlanta is a top priority for DPR. For the past few months, we have employed military veterans to help residents lead active lifestyles through Coca-Cola’s Troops for Fitness program. This program offers free fitness classes at select Atlanta recreation centers where military veterans teach strength training, yoga, dancercise, boot camp classes and much more. As this spring season approaches, we are excited to take our new Troops for Fitness Program outdoors. Make sure you log on to iPARCS to view the class schedule. We are excited to announce that the John A. White Pool will reopen for the 2014 pool season. The redevelopment includes a new pool, which has a zero-depth entry area and new spray play feature, and a new bath-house with a family restroom. DPR is committed to enhancing the lives of our residents and visitors by working diligently to provide exceptional spaces and memorable experiences. We encourage you to get out, get active and enjoy all of the activities that Parks and Recreation has to offer.

Sincerely,

George A. Dusenbury Commissioner Department of Parks and Recreation
