Vernon Oaks Park gets facelift for park paths
Dunwoody, GA – July 16, 2012 – Dunwoody residents and visitors can now “Be Prepared” for an even more enjoyable outing to a local City park. The rejuvenation is the result of hard work and planning by Boy Scout and Dunwoody High School student Adam Stecker who recently gave back to the Dunwoody community by renovating the walking paths at Vernon Oaks Park.
Stecker started with a plan to spruce up and repair part of the parks trails as part of an Eagle Scout project. After coordination with the City of Dunwoody Parks and Recreation Department Stecker was able to install new timbers to line the trails and spread more than 2,400 sq. feet of mulch, and add a new picnic table.
The small neighborhood park, about .5 acres, has a simple network of walking trails that lead users through the park. Vernon Oaks features a small stream, well structure, and a few seating areas. Neighborhood residents primarily use the park for casual strolls, walking their dogs, or as a place where their children can enjoy some outdoor playtime.
For additional information about this and other Dunwoody Parks visit the City of Dunwoody website at Dunwoodyga.gov. For questions or more information about the City please contact Edie Damann at email@example.com.
