History & Goals
The Sandy Springs Conservancy was established in 2001 as a grass-roots effort by citizens to preserve rapidly disappearing greenspace and recreation areas in Sandy Springs. Before Sandy Springs was even a city, there was the Sandy Springs Conservancy.
When several members of a Sandy Springs roundtable meeting raised concerns about conserving parks and greenspace in the area, they formed the Sandy Springs Revitalization Initiative in 2001, to address this and other development issues. This group subsequently formed the Sandy Springs Conservancy, a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit.
Since its inception, the Conservancy has provided educational, technical and financial support to create 100 acres of parks throughout Sandy Springs, recreational assets that are cherished by children and adults in our community.
The Sandy Springs Conservancy is committed to working with public and private partners to create, conserve and connect parks, greenspace, and trails in Sandy Springs.
