The group Friends of Dearborn Park is holding a trail cleanup Saturday, September 26 from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m.

Dearborn Park is located at 1301 Deerwood Drive in Decatur. The park cleanup will include invasive plant removal along Chevelle Road to W. Dearborn Circle and tree plantings, according to a Facebook event announcement.

Volunteers are asked to bring heavy duty trash bags, gas-powered trimmers, and a leaf blower. Work gloves, water, and safety vests are also recommended.

An email announcement said, “If you’d like to volunteer please contact us at FriendsOfDearbornPark@gmail.com or go to www.Facebook.com/FriendsOfDearbornPark or call 678-435-9991.”

There will also be an art class happening nearby in the pavilion. If you are interested in attending the “Art by Liz” class, you can email studiolizbethbrown@gmail.com or call 678-902-7858.

    Thanks Dena. I hope this went well today in spite of the weather. Dearborn Park is a real jewel in the Midway and Decatur neighborhoods. Not too long ago, the DHS Close Up club participated in cleanup programs at Dearborn. I remember those efforts to remove invasive/evasive plants and hope we made a difference.
    On a more personal note, I recall that as a 12 year old youngster, I had a great time sliding down the creek slides at Dearborn. The slides are still there for those parents smart enough to buy into a neighborhood with potential. Who knows, maybe the entire park will be inside the Decatur city limits one day.
