To better fulfill the potential for Center City and LeBauer Parks, Greensboro Downtown Parks, Inc. was created. The 501(c)(3) non-profit maintains a public-private partnership serving the downtown community through activated urban greenspaces. The mission of GDPI is to serve as the executive management of Greensboro’s downtown parks, focusing on public activation, maintenance, financial well-being and overall vitality.
Center City Park and LeBauer Park are a combined 5-acre urban green space serving as the central gathering place for Greensboro's residents and visitors in a setting that is both relaxed and lively. Each year, the parks play host to hundreds of public programs and events, bringing more than 200,000 visitors annually. The parks feature outstanding public art, recreational equipment, facilities for children, pet-friendly spaces, café dining, and artistic performance pavilions. Located directly across Davie Street from one another, each park offers a unique atmosphere in the heart of the Cultural Arts District. From LeBauer’s innovative design dedicated to activity and play, to Center City’s lush, green serenity, visitors are sure to find whatever park experience they desire.
Drawing people from a range of ages, races, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, socioeconomic standings, abilities, and life experiences, the parks have truly become the heart of Greensboro with a pulse on the current happenings of our community. Alongside sponsors and dedicated program partners, GDPI annually hosts over 400 FREE public programs and events in the parks. GDPI maintains that a connection to place carries deep meaning in the lives of all people. The goal of our organization through its programming is to build and maintain a relationship between our parks and the greater community, making these spaces essential places in the lives of the people of Greensboro. The organization's driving belief in its placemaking efforts is that a meaningful connection to the parks will help people connect with the city on the whole and build in them a desire to commit to living and working here longterm - and in that time, make important contributions to the city's progress.
