Construction in Deepdene

The Vale in the west end of Deepdene will be closed Monday, June 19 – June 30, 2017, while DeKalb County conducts repairs to the waterfall rock area and trails. The closure of this area will allow the work, which is in a very active area of the park, to be completed uninterrupted, expeditiously and safely.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to keep our park beautiful and safe for all to enjoy. We appreciate your support! If you have any concerns or questions, please call 404-377-5361 or send an inquiry to
