Biographical / Historical
Ansley Park Garden Club of Atlanta, Georgia, was organized in 1952 to gain a better understanding and appreciation of their community, to cooperate with the City in improving the parks in their neighborhood, and to study the culture of plants and flowers. The club is governed by elected officers including president, vice president, and treasurer and is a member of The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. Dogwood District, the Fulton Federation of Garden Clubs, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. One of the club's earliest and ongoing projects has been the landscaping and beautification of McClatchey Park in the Ansley Park neighborhood, as well as planting and improvements to nearby traffic islands. In 1993, the club won an award from The Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. for their annual outdoor holiday decorations created for the neighborhood. Club members have participated in local and regional flower shows, winning numerous awards.
