DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs and District 4 Commissioner Steve Bradshaw held a groundbreaking ceremony today (July 7) for the Hairston Park playground renovation, 911 South Hairston Road, Stone Mountain.
Attendees had a chance to learn more about the Friends of Hairston Park, upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
In addition to the renovation of the Hairston Park playground, Commissioner Bradshaw, park officials and Friends of Hairston Park are planning other upgrades including, water fountains, picnic tables, grills, landscaping and a pavilion.
In May, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners approved Bradshaw’s request to add more than $140,000 in improvements to Hairston Park. The upgrades should be completed by fall 2017.
