Dobbs is on Jonesboro Road in southeast Atlanta and Kimberly is on McMurray Drive in southwest Atlanta.
"We are thrilled to help hundreds of families within a 10-minute walk of these schools benefit from greater access to safe outdoor recreation areas," said George Dusenbury, Georgia state director for The Trust for Public Land, in a written statement.
The Trust is one of several organizations supporting the project — called the Atlanta Community Schoolyards program. Other supporters include Atlanta Public Schools, the City of Atlanta, Park Pride and Urban Land Institute Atlanta.
Over the next three years, Delta Air Lines will donate $500,000 and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation will give $1 million to help pay for the project. Organizers want to raise a total of $1.8 million for Atlanta schoolyard projects and $1.5 million for projects in other school districts.
