DeKalb County is growing and culturally diverse community committed to supporting and improving the health, wellness, and quality of life of its residents. Essential to the quality of life of a community is the opportunity for passive and active recreation. The goal of DeKalb County is to provide five acres of park space for every 1,000 community members. With this goal in mind, the DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs Department has set aside 46 acres in south-central DeKalb County for the creation of a community park.
The 46 Acre Park will offer space and amenities to the Ellenwood community and fulfill DeKalb County’s need to provide programs that promote recreation and cross-generational activities resulting in healthy lifestyles. Open spaces, as well as conserved natural spaces, will give the Ellenwood community greater opportunities for social interaction, physical exercise and enjoyment of the natural environment.
