Decatur Link of the Week

The website we're featuring as this week's "Decatur Link of the Week" is the DECATUR PARK DISTRICT (DPD).

The DPD operates:
  • over 2,000 acres of park land
  • an indoor sports center
  • the Decatur Airport
  • three golf courses (Hickory Point Golf Course, Red Tail Run, Scovill Golf Course)
  • a miniature golf course
  • softball, soccer and tennis complexes
  • bike trails
  • numerous athletic fields
  • a community aquatic center
  • an AZA-accredited zoo
  • an equestrian center
  • a banquet, food & beverage business

In addition, the DPD is heavily involved in the promotion of the arts, sponsoring the Decatur Park Singers, the Greater Decatur Chorale and many dance/drama activities.

Fun (and amazing) fact:  The Decatur Park District’s 2,000+ acres of park space are nearly double the national standard for a community of Decatur’s size.

The staff and directors of the DPD do a fantastic job at keeping all their parks and facilities maintained, making our park system a true gem of the Decatur community and the entire region.
