Dunwoody City Council Approves Brook Run Park Improvements

Construction will begin in late March and last throughout 2019

 

Dunwoody, GA – January 07, 2019 – The Dunwoody City Council took an important step in moving ahead with transformational improvement plans at Brook Run Park. In December, the council unanimously approved a $7.58 million construction project.

“This is the biggest project we’ve taken on to date,” said Dunwoody City Manager Eric Linton. “Our citizens have been waiting a long time for this. A year from now, you’ll be very proud.”

Construction will begin in late March and last throughout 2019. But important amenities will remain open, and popular events will continue to be held at Brook Run Park.

Lemonade Days will be back from April 24-28, but some event and ride locations may be slightly different due to construction in the back of the park.

All Brook Run Park facility rentals will end after Lemonade Days for the remainder of the year.

The Brook Run Playground will remain open and accessible throughout construction. Food Truck Thursdays will also go on as in years past.

The Dog Park Brook Run Trail will remain open, as well, with the possibility of intermittent closures. The City will post updated information on any closures on the City’s website and social media channels.

Here are key components of the project:

  • A great lawn with a performance stage, terraced seating, expanded levels of open space, restrooms and an upgraded event pavilion
  • Two multi-sports fields with a concession stand, overlook plaza, improved parking, restrooms, and an added entrance from Barclay Drive.
  • A new covered picnic pavilion area, new restrooms and additional parking
  • A nine-hole disc golf course

“This project is the result of an enormous amount of public input and two park master plans,” said Dunwoody Parks Director Brent Walker. “We’re finally ready to start putting in the amenities that the public wants.”
