DeKalb Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs to unveil new pier

The DeKalb Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs will hold an official ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the county’s newest fishing pier at 10 a.m. Friday, April 19, according to a press release. The ceremony will be held at Chapel Hill Park, 4002 Lehigh Blvd, Decatur.

A total of $158,000 was contributed to construct a fishing pier with a pavilion and trail to improve connectivity.

The project was funded in part by a Park Pride Community Building Grant.

The public is invited to join county officials, parks staff, Friends of Chapel Hill Park and Park Pride representatives at the ceremony for this new amenity that will allow park visitors to more fully take advantage of the beautiful lake.
