MULTI-NEIGHBORHOOD COMMUNITY EFFORT
Friends of Kittredge Park would like to welcome our neighbors, community groups and other interested parties to our Monthly Kittredge Park Community Clean Up - RAIN or SHINE
Where: Kittredge Park
What: Park Clean Up, removal of invasive plant species, trash removal, trail building
When: Posted monthly on LVPCA Calendar
How to get there: Go to North Druid Hills Rd, turn onto road at the traffic light between Adams Stadium and Kittredge School to get behind Adams Stadium (Across from the car wash), follow road to park entrance beside the pool. There will be people or signs there to direct you to the clean up areas inside the park.
Pedestrians may enter the park from the Merry Hills neighborhood but there is very limited parking available.
History: Did you know that there is a 33 acre park on North Druid Hills Rd? There is! And it needs community participation and involvement to make it truly serve our neighborhoods. The park is a mixture of land grants, family and environmental group grants. DeKalb County has earmarked funds, from a 2001 bond, to make the park more accessible to everyone and we are making it a reality.
County construction on the park is scheduled to begin in May, but there is much work to be done before and after the construction is complete.
Plans: A large map of the planned park will be on hand so that you can see what the future park will ultimately look like.
Come help your community, volunteer, create a natural park with trails and activity areas.
Tools, gloves trash bags and refreshments provided. Please come in appropriate attire. Your presence, even for part of the time, shows our elected officials that we are truly interested and invested in this project.
FKP has T-Shirts available for $15 to raise funds and show support.
