Piedmont Park: A Place We LUV
Southwest does its part for one of Atlanta’s favorite public spaces.
I serve as president and CEO of Piedmont Park Conservancy in Atlanta, and every time I walk through the park I’m drawn in by the sight of children playing, friends gathering, and people enjoying the outdoors. On a sunny afternoon, you might find families fishing in Lake Clara Meer, pet lovers tossing Frisbees in the dog park, or shoppers buying fresh, local food from the Green Market. Throughout the week, Piedmont comes alive with concerts and festivals. Everyone from music buffs to fitness fanatics can find something here that reaches them. Best of all, entrance to the park is free.
Having a fun place to gather enriches our community in more ways than you’d think. It enhances property values, attracts businesses, and makes Atlanta a better place to live and work. With more than 200 acres to maintain, we rely on the generosity of our volunteers and sponsors—like Southwest Airlines—to provide a clean, safe, and enjoyable park experience. Southwest is more than just a supporter, though; it truly believes in our mission of making Piedmont a place we LUV. The Southwest Porch and Rink add yet another wonderful place for our community to gather, and thanks to generous donations and volunteer efforts, we have mowed 1,500 acres, spread 4,000 yards of mulch, and planted thousands of flowers. From Employee Volunteers who donate time from the heart to the Company’s contributions as a Chairman’s Circle Sponsor, Southwest is committed to helping us preserve and enhance Piedmont.
Piedmont is more than just a park—it’s the heart and soul of Atlanta. For the past 25 years, the Piedmont Park Conservancy has made it our mission to enhance and preserve this great space. We’re thrilled to celebrate this milestone, and we thank Southwest for LUVing Piedmont Park just as much as we do. To learn more, check out piedmontpark.org.
