An Outdoor Adventure
To get a glimpse of the beautiful landscape and scenery that Dunwoody has to offer, spend the day exploring the parks in the area. The Dunwoody Nature Center is a family friendly place where you can become involved in environmental education while enjoying the beautiful park surroundings. Special classes and events are held at the park on a scheduled basis. If you are looking for a place for the little ones to play, make a stop at Brook Run Park. The park is home to a gigantic playground and unique skating arena. It even has a place for your furry friends with an open dog park.
No matter how much the city grows, Dunwoody continues to preserve some of its history and the Donaldson-Bannister Farm reflects this. The farm began with a home that was built in the 1870s, right after the Civil War ended. Originally home to eight different outbuildings, the land is situated on the corner of Chamblee-Dunwoody and Vermack Road. A family cemetery is located on the property along with a well and a barn. After the land was purchased in 1935, electricity and running water were added to the original structure. Today, the farm can be rented for both public and private events.
