Forest Park Resources

Canopy Atlanta asked more than 120 Forest Park community members about the information they needed in spring and summer 2021 for our Forest Park Issue. In addition to stories about local food, policing, education, and more, we compiled resources on the topics that Forest Park residents told us they want below.
