Staying Active This Weekend

There are many manys to stay active this weekend in Decatur: events, organized rides, art, places to walk or cycle to, and more. What are you waiting for? Get out of the house and enjoy your city!

Friday:
Bike Decatur Mobile Social: 6:30 pm at the Church Street MARTA Station. Don your beach wear and join Decatur Active Living and Bike Decatur for a beach-themed leisurely 5 mile ride around Decatur neighborhoods. After the ride we will go to Beach Party and dance the  night away! Helmets are required.

Decatur Beach Party: 5 – 11 pm, on the Square in downtown Decatur. Walk or bike to the event that is fun for the entire family. Children’s Boardwalk and music from A1A to dance to.

Saturday:
Visit the Decatur Farmers Market, 9 – 1 pm, at the corner of Trinity Place and N McDonough. Chef Eric Ottensmeyer from Leon’s will be demonstrating. Squash, blueberries and peaches are just some of the tasty summer foods available. Shop for a great dinner for Dad on Sunday!

Sidewalk Saturdays continue in downtown Decatur and Oakhurst from 3 – 6 pm. Thanks to the Decatur Arts Alliance,  artists and musicians will hit the sidewalks. Have lunch and then walk or  hop on your bike and ride to Harmony Park and back to downtown Atlanta to enjoy the day.

Sunday:
Join Bicycle South for their monthly Stone Mountain ride. Cyclists leave Bicycle South at 9 am. This is a no-drop ride. Helmets are required. After the ride there will be snacks at the shop. It’s my birthday so join the ride and help me celebrate.

Celebrate Father’s Day with an afternoon at one of Decatur’s pools or parks. Ebster pool is a great place to swim laps. Enjoy the adult playground at  Glenlake Park while the children enjoy the children’s playground and then hop in the pool to cool off. Bring your toddlers to McKoy pool – with zero entry it is as close as you can get to the beach in Decatur.

Take a stroll through Woodlands Garden. You are welcome to visit for a quiet stroll any day during daylight hours. A walk through the woods on a hot day will cool you off and provide an escape from the city without having to leave the city! Consider walking or biking over as parking is limited.
