DeKalb County children are invited to help select Hairston Park’s new playground on Saturday, June 24, 11:30 am. Friends of Hairston Park is hosting a special planning meeting seeking input from citizens about the park’s planned upgrades at the Mainstreet Community Center, 5001 Mainstreet Park, Stone Mountain.
Hairston Park is a 45.7-acre park located in the Greater Hidden Hills community. Children attending the meeting will review three playground renderings presented by DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs. The rendering with the most votes will be selected as Hairston Park’s preferred playground. Attendees will also learn more about Friends of Hairston Park, volunteer opportunities and upcoming events.
On July 7, DeKalb County will break ground on updating Hairston Park to include new water fountains, picnic tables, grills, shrubs, a pavilion and dog park fencing. District 4 Commissioner Steve Bradshaw and Friends of Hairston Park led the initiative and park upgrades should be completed by fall 2017.
