Brook Run Multi-Use Trail
The City of Dunwoody held the Grand Opening for Phase one of the Brook Run Multi-Use Trail Saturday, August 3, 2013. The three-quarter mile “Phase I” section of the Brook Run multi-use trail will eventually connect with Phase II, a one mile, 12-foot wide multi-use concrete trail which will complete an approximate 2 mile loop within the park.
The second and final phase of the trail is planned for design-build in 2013 and the City has been awarded a second DNR Recreational Trails Grant to use towards the completion of this project.
