WHAT IS A PARK PRIDE FRIENDS GROUP?
Friends of the Park (FoP) groups tie into the core values of DeKalb County's Park Pride by creating the framework for an inclusive, collaborative, and systemic approach to transforming green spaces. Despite differences in size and scope, every Friends of the Park group features a group of park users (and community and business leaders) actively working to improve one or more parks in a defined geographical area – usually a neighborhood.
The Friends of Hairston Park re-emerged in February 2017 as a volunteer group and partner of Park Pride and The Greater Hidden Hills Community Development Corporation (GHHCDC). Within months, it has expanded beyond its original members and now includes other park advocates. FHOP is in partnership with Park Pride, GHHCDC, & DeKalb Park and Cultural Affairs. We are committed to initiating and promoting beautification projects within the park and we look forward to future partnerships with other park enthusiasts.
