Staying Active This Weekend in Decatur

Okay, it may rain all weekend, but just in case, here are some things to do outside. And if it does rain, we have some ideas for things to do inside as well!

If it DOES NOT rain:

Join Decatur BIkes for the weekly ride to Stone Mountain. This no-drop ride is fun and casual. Meet in the CVS parking lot across the street from Decatur Bikes at 8 am. Helmets are required.

Sams’ Freight Room Ride occurs every Saturday at 2pm. An eay 11 mile ride through Avondale Estates, Oakhurst and Decatur is mainly on residential streets. Special attention given to beginning riders. Leaves from 410 E Howard Ave. Afterwards the group will go to a local restauratn for refreshments and socializing. Helmets are required. For more information contact Lynne Rosner at

Decatur BBQ & Blues Festival will be held in Harmony Park in Oakhurst from 4p  – 10 pm.

The monthly Bicycle South ride to Stone Mountain is this Sunday and all levels of riders are welcome. Another no-drop ride, it leaves from Bicycle South at 9am on Sunday morning. This is another fun, casual ride and helmets are required.

Saturday or Sunday:
Take a stroll in Woodlands Garden on Scott Boulevard. Open to the community during daylight hours every day! Bike or walk over as parking is limited. Or park at Westchester and walk over from there.

Visit Glenlake Park. Children can play on the playground while the adults “play” on the adult exercise equipment.  We do not recommend that children play on the adult equipment as they may be hurt or injured. It is not built for their little bodies.

Swim at one of our  three great public pools.

Play some tennis at one of our public courts.

OR just take a stroll or bike ride around your neighborhood and get to know your neighbors.

If it DOES rain:

Stop by Decatur Recreation Center  and take a casual walk or run on our indoor walking track. It is available during regular hours on Saturday and free to the community. If it clears up while you are here, step out back to enjoy Scott Park. The drop by the Decatur Branch of the library and  browse the thousands of books.

Family Play at the Decatur Recreation Center gym from 2-4 pm on Saturdays. Bring a ball and shoot some hoops with your family. Free to residents, $2 for non-residents.
