Council members Cleta Winslow and Antonio Brown to Hold Ribbon Cutting with Department of Parks and Recreation and Supporters Saturday at Mozley Park

ATLANTA — District 4 Council member Cleta Winslow and District 3 Council member Antonio Brown will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday, Aug. 17 at 10:30 a.m. for new playground equipment at Mozley Park, 1565 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. NW. The event is open to the public and will be held in partnership with the Department of Parks and Recreation, Park Pride and the Friends of Mozley Park.

Park Pride donated $100,000 for the purchase of the new playground equipment to continue improvements to the physical appearance of the historic park. The park serves the residents of Districts 3 and 4 and the enhancements to the playground will give children in the area a new experience.

“Over the past several years concerned residents formed the Friends of Mozley Park in an effort to help revitalize this historic park, and as a result, Park Pride’s contribution will help continue to power community engagement through our parks,” Winslow said. “Mozley Park is a treasure in the city of Atlanta. I want to express my gratitude to the Friends of Mozley Park, Park Pride, and the Department of Parks and Recreation for their support in creating a safe environment for the children to enjoy.”

“It is important that we invest in our playgrounds, parks and green spaces within our community. I want to thank the Friends of Mozley Park, Park Pride, and the Department of Parks and Recreation for this playground transformation,” Brown said. “Mozley Park is a real amenity for the residents in the community and access to a local park and a playground encourages children to connect with nature and each other.”
