The Dunwoody Trailway is a 12-foot wide, multi-use trail which connects across three distinctive parks in the City of Dunwoody: Brook Run Park, Pernoshal Park and Georgetown Park. Covering an estimated 2.76 total miles, the Dunwoody Trailway offers loops, straightaways and curves providing walkers, runners, strollers and bikers with scenic passage through some of the city’s most peaceful and picturesque landscapes. Adjacent to the trail within Brook Run Park there is a children’s playground, an active skate park, a community garden, a dog park, a public pavilion and ample greenery for active and passive recreation. The Dunwoody Trailway connects the 100-plus acre Brook Run Park with the city’s newest outdoor amenity, Pernoshal Park. As the Dunwoody Trailway meanders through a tree-lined canopy and along boardwalks and bridges across a tributary of Nancy Creek, the multi-use trail leads to a series of workout stations and play structures situated along the trail within Pernoshal Park. Equipped with bicycle repair stations, the trail then leads to more outdoor adventures within Georgetown Park, a perfect place for a game of bocce, a relaxing stop at a pavilion or a newly built children’s playground furnished with comfortable shade awnings. In April 2019, the new pedestrian bridge over the north fork of Nancy Creek was completed. The 145-foot bridge connects Dunwoody’s Georgetown Community with Perimeter Center. Future plans for the trail incorporate connections to other parks in the city.
