From Park Pride’s 2020 Spring Newsletter.
In 2019, Park Pride, Friends of the Park groups, and DeKalb County were proud to celebrate a Decade in DeKalb and the accomplishments of the communities supported through capital improvements, volunteer engagement, and community building in DeKalb County parks!
“Through the years, Park Pride has helped us tremendously by bridging the gap with the citizens of DeKalb County to unlock the benefits of our parks,” said Chuck Ellis, Director of the DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs.
Through the years, Park Pride has worked with 70 Friends of the Park groups in DeKalb County. As Bill Lide with Friends of Kittredge Park shared, the support of Park Pride’s Volunteer Program and Grant Program helped make his park a “go to” retreat for neighbors. “We could not have done it without the immeasurable help of the great people of Park Pride.”
Thank you, DeKalb County and Friends of the Park groups, for giving your time and passion to develop parks that meet the needs of local communities!
