Dear Miss Moore:

Thank you for your letter of January 8, 1967 to the
Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. regarding the possibility
of saddle horses at Piedmont Park.

The stables you refer to at Piedmont Park are used
for workshop and storage. We desperately need
additional areas and could not imagine giving up
this space at the present time unless it could be
replaced by a modern adequate warehouse.

Horses are provided at Chastain Memorial Park but even
this far out are posing serious problems which at this
moment are causing the Aldermanic Parks Committee to

consider the elemination of horses from all park areas.

We realize the recreational value in horse-back
ridihg but regret that we cannot accommodate you at
Piedmont Park,

Thanking you again for your letter, I am

Jack C, Delius
General Manager of
Parks and Recreation
