Welcome From The Director

Parks & Rec Banner - Baby in Toy Car - Children Walking Mountain - Child Playing in Playground

Welcome to DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs! I hope that you find this site helpful as you navigate through and learn about the department and some of the many interesting and exciting opportunities available in our County. I encourage you to get involved and be active in your daily lives.

Our recreation centers, parks and the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts and Community Center offer great activities for ages 3 to 55+. Whether you live here or are just visiting, we invite you to take advantage of the programs, facilities, special events and cultural arts available to you in DeKalb County. In addition, there are many opportunities for citizens to participate in community recreational and volunteer activities.

I am very proud of our facilities and the dedicated staff who make the whole system work. As agents of our local government, we consider it an honor and a privilege to fulfill the responsibilities and services our citizens have entrusted to us. We will continue to work hard and strive to give our patrons the very best we have to offer.

We encourage all members of the community to join us in promoting active and healthy lifestyles through participation in parks and recreational activities. There may be no better time to get started than right now! After all, imagine your world without parks and recreation!

Feel free to email me your thoughts, comments, ideas, suggestions, or good and bad news to mfbillup@dekalbcountyga.gov,

Sincerely,

Marvin Billups
