DECATUR, Ga. – DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond announces a $1.8 million plan to reopen Intrenchment Creek Park on Bouldercrest Road Southeast.

The funding will finance the construction of new amenities in Intrenchment Creek Park,  which will include a pavillion, trailhead, remote control airplane runway and walking trail.   

“I thank the Board of Commissioners for supporting our request to fund the redevelopment and reopening of Intrenchment Creek Park,” CEO Thurmond said. “We are excited about the investment in the new amenities and will work to expedite construction.”

The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners allocated funding for the project from the 2023 Tourism Product Development Fund, which comes from hotel and motel taxes.

“I know everyone is eager to get back to participating in recreational activities in the Intrenchment Creek Park, so we are thrilled to receive this funding to improve the quality of life for the citizens of DeKalb,” said DeKalb County Parks Director Chuck Ellis.

Intrenchment Creek Park has been closed to the public since March 2023 for safety reasons and for renovations and upgrades.
