The City of Dunwoody Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide the residents of Dunwoody with the highest quality parks, recreational services and green space to enhance the quality of life to our community.
The City of Dunwoody manages six major parks with combined land space of over 156 acres. Two of the City's parks are currently under development. These parks are home to several major events each year and offer a variety of activities including skating, tennis, and more.

Mission

Our mission is to provide essential services, facilities and programs necessary for the positive development and well-being of the community through the provision of parks, greenways, trails and recreational facilities while working in cooperation with other service providers in the community in order to maximize all available resources.

Jim Benson Bike Trail

This 8-mile bike trail is the first marked bicycle route in the City of Dunwoody. The route premiered as part of the 2010 Lemonade Days Bicycle Ride Around Dunwoody event. The route begins and ends at Brook Run Park. Optional spurs and high traffic areas are marked on route map at the above link.

 


Parks and Recreation Green Space Comprehensive Plan

The Parks and Open Space master planning process began following the June 2010 acquisitions of six park properties from DeKalb County. Master planning is a process by which the community works with the City to create a vision and guiding plan for the City’s future investment in its current parks and potential acquisition of additional parkland and open space. The City Council will be discussing the Master Plan over the coming weeks during regularly scheduled Council meetings.
