Do you live near or regularly use DeKalb Memorial Park? Do you play sports, garden, or enjoy the scenery at the park? Do you have ideas for how DeKalb Memorial Park could be enhanced and preserved for future generations to love and enjoy?
If so, we need to hear your voice!
The Parkview and Kirkwood community is embarking on the park visioning process to create a conceptual plan for DeKalb Memorial Park in partnership with Park Pride and other community organizations, including YMCA Teen Center, Parkview Civic Club, Ivy Preparatory Academy, Kirkwood Neighbors Organization, and the DPRCA Citizen Advisory Board.
The Visioning Process will result in a conceptual master plan reflective of the community’s desires for what they would like to see in their neighborhood park. Your opinion is critical to the success of this much-loved and valued greenspace.
