DeKalb County Parks & Recs has notified Friends of Dearborn Park and asked that we spread the word that the path in Dearborn Park is solely for pedestrian use only and bicycles are prohibited. The wooded area paths were being destroyed, but this has been on the books for decades.
The signs below have been posted throughout the park:
