Join Central families for a playground gathering at the Decatur "toy park" on Saturday, October 25, at 10:00 a.m. The Park is a joint initiative of the First Christian Church of Decatur and the Ponce de Leon Heights Neighborhood Association and is situated in downtown Decatur at the intersection of West Ponce de Leon Avenue, Nelson Ferry Road, and Northern Avenue (click here for directions). There is usually plenty of street parking, and you may also park in the church's parking lot, which you may access from Ponce de Leon.
This park is a Decatur-area favorite, known for its riding toys, such as scooters, tricycles, bikes, wagons, and push cars, as well as play houses/kitchens and many other toys donated by the community. There are also stumps for climbing, a large green space, and traditional playground equipment. Parents can sit and chat at picnic tables or on park benches, and kids have a safe, secure place to run around. **Non-walkers also find plenty to do with push toys and places to crawl.**
Dancing Goats, a fabulous coffee shop, is practically next door, and a number of fun lunch spots (The Marlay, Farm Burger, Chai Pani, and Taqueria del Sol) are within a short, short stroll.
Contact person is Kimberly Head Amos. RSVP'ing is great, but feel free to just show up. Kimberly, Lewis, Anne, and Elizabeth look forward to seeing y'all there!
