Letter from the Director

Dear Chamblee Resident, Over the past fifteen months Chamblee’s Parks have never seen so many people! The pandemic, while awful, did bring attention to the importance of local parks. It also shined a light on the benefits of getting outdoors and enjoying natures beauty, as well as the desire for creative programming both outdoors and online. During this time, Chamblee’s innovative staff provided participants with new programs, events, challenges, scavenger hunts, activity books and online classes. We heard from several residents and teachers that these programs were beneficial to their children and schools. Because of this many of these programs can still be found online or in this issue of the activity guide. In addition to coordinating new programs, the department was able to move forward with a few park projects, including four Eagle Scout projects, and opened a new park called Arrow Creek along Buford Highway. Currently, Arrow Creek Park consists of a shaded fitness park, dog park and picnic areas. Future plans for the park include the addition of open playing fields and multi-sport courts. This fall, we are excited to be fully operational again and offering new and familiar programs to our residents. We will continue to monitor the COVID pandemic and adapt operations to provide a fun and safe environment for everyone. We hope to see you out in the parks! Most sincerely yours,

Jodie Gilfillan Jodie Gilfillan, CPRP Chamblee Parks and Recreation Director
