Stone Mountain, GA — DeKalb County Commissioner Steve Bradshaw allocated $131,715 in park bond funds to complete engineering documents for Rowland Neighborhood Park.
Rowland Neighborhood Park, located at 1227 Rowland Road in Stone Mountain, is situated on two acres of land with a small creek running through it, according to a press release.
“This funding allocation moves us one step closer to the revitalization of what once was undeveloped property to a new park amenity for park goers,” Commissioner Bradshaw said. “I am pleased that we are moving forward with engineering plans for the park development.”
Theresa Woodgeard, president of the Friends Group of Rowland Neighborhood Park, said the group is grateful for Bradshaw’s interest and investment into the development of the park.
“This project is something our communities are excited about and are looking forward to developing into a space that we can all enjoy and be proud of,” Woodgeard said in the press release.
Bradshaw introduced the allocation during a Nov. 15 Board of Commissioners’ meeting, and the allocation became official with a vote by the board during the business meeting.
The master plan for the park can be found at www.dekalbcountyga.gov/parks/programs-and-events.
