Please see the letter from Parks and Recreation.

Dear Residents and Neighbors of Renaissance Park:

The City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation is committed to providing safe and exceptional parks, facilities, and programs. In keeping with this mission, we continuously review safety and beautification needs throughout all City of Atlanta parks. You have all likely noticed or been made aware of the recent fencing which has gone up around Renaissance Park. Following an internal review and feedback from the community, we have determined that renovations and repairs to Renaissance Park are needed, and in order to adequately perform the necessary work, the Department of Parks and Recreation will need to close the park. The planned work will begin this week and last through winter of 2017, reopening in the early Spring of 2018. During this closure, the Department will focus on renovations, maintenance and beautification projects including environmental cleanup, aerating and re-seeding of turf lawns, a tree safety audit, invasive removal, and the repair of damaged infrastructure. We will do everything within our control to minimize the duration of the closure, and to provide residents with access to the dog park, we plan to keep the lower dog park off of Piedmont open through the duration of the project.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause; however, we are certain that Renaissance Park will return better than ever after the attention it will receive during the closure period. We will provide more information for a Renaissance Park Rededication Ceremony as spring nears. In the meantime, please feel free to contact Michael Calevski at mjcalevski@atlantaga.gov in the Department of Parks and Recreation should you have additional questions or thoughts. Specifically, if there is interest in pursuing additional neighborhood-sponsored improvements in the park during the remediation phase, we encourage you to bring those ideas forward to the Department.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation,

City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation

There are no planned permitted "gathering" events for Renaissance and Central Parks for the weekend of October 13-15.

If there is parking along the south side of Renaissance Park on Pine St going west, please notify APD so citations may be issued. No grilling is allowed in the park without a permit. ...
