DeKalb County Commissioner Steve Bradshaw will propose the allocation of $215,000 for improvements to Little Creek Horse Farm in Decatur.

Commissioner Bradshaw, who visited the farm earlier this year, will propose the allocation of the District 4 parks bond funding during Thursday’s (July 27) Board of Commissioners’ meeting.

Little Creek Horse Farm, a 40-acre park located in Decatur that was refurbished in 2010 with park bond funds, has a 46-stall barn with an indoor arena, wash stalls and lounge. Experienced trainers provide riding lessons at the farm to children and adults of all riding abilities.

“Little Creek Horse Farm is one of DeKalb County’s many jewels and has the potential to become a premier international attraction,” Commissioner Bradshaw said. “It only makes sense to provide the funds for improvements that will draw many more visitors.

“This allocation of resources to Little Creek Horse Farm will take care of much needed improvements including parking accessible to persons with disabilities, gutter and roof repairs as well as pasture and manure management,” Commissioner Bradshaw said.

Additionally, a donor will build a pavilion that will greatly improve the viewing section for visitors, Commissioner Bradshaw said.

“In its role as steward of the park, the Little Creek Farm Conservancy will be working with the parks department, volunteers and community groups such as the local Friends of Park group to ensure efficient and cost effective management of these projects to benefit the park and the community,” said Jane Donofrio, president of Little Creek Farm Conservancy.
