Friends of Anderson Park
In 2019, residents of the Dixie Hills & Penelope Neighbors neighborhoods which surround Anderson Park worked with Park Pride to form Friends of Anderson Park.
Park Pride 2021 Legacy Grant Award:
Anderson Park and the surrounding neighborhoods of Dixie Hills and Penelope Neighbors are beyond excited about our grant award to create a community and cultural mural on the wall panels surrounding the swimming pool area. The mural represents an opportunity to memorialize the rich history of the neighborhoods, historic H.M. Turner High School, and the pioneering African American achievements birthed from the citizens who share a special connection to this area. We are proud to announce renowned Atlanta Artist Derick Jackson as our Muralist. Thanks to Park Pride for partnering with Friends of Anderson Park and Historic Hills CDC with their continued engagement resource allocation towards this grand vision.
