Dearborn Park
This is a small but pretty park in unincorporated DeKalb county, just outside both the City of Atlanta and the City of Decatur. It is heavily shaded with a few walking trails and a picnic pavilion. A great place for barbecues or just to take a little nature break. There’s also a bridge across a small stream.
