Payment System Down

Our payment system is temporarily down. We are working to resolve the issue. Only exact cash or in-state checks are accepted at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Natural Paint Brushes

Gather various items from nature including grass, pine needles, leaves, and feathers. Tie these objects to sticks to create natural paint brushes. See how each item paints and the unique patterns that the items create. Which one is your favorite?

What you will need:

  • Various sticks
  • Paper
  • String
  • Paint
  • Objects from nature


Build A Stick Raft

Join sticks with string to create a raft that floats. Add a sail if you’d like. Trying multiple versions may make for a more successful raft! Try racing them in a stream with friends while social distancing.

What you will need:

  • Various sticks – try to get them around the same length with twigs removed.
  • String
  • Paper for sail
  • Tape


Nature Rubbing Art

Find leaves, flowers and other objects from nature. Place a piece of paper over the object and color over the top of the object with a colored pencil. As you color, an imprint of the object will magically appear on the paper! After, try it with aluminium foil instead of paper!

What you will need:

  • Objects from Nature
  • Paper
  • Something to color with


Chalk the Park tomorrow at Glenlake Park!

Honoring Juneteenth

On June 19th, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galvestion, TX, and announced the end of the Civil War and the end of slavery. Juneteenth commemorates the African Americans freedom! We encourage to learn, listen, and celebrate today. There’s a lot happening around Metro Atlanta.

Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area will provide a livestream of Facebook of the Flat Rock Community Cemetery which is the oldest African American community in DeKalb. https://www.facebook.com/ArabiaMountainNationalHeritageArea
