Dunwoody closes playgrounds to protect against coronavirus

Starting Friday, the City of Dunwoody will close its playgrounds to help protect against the spread of coronavirus. This is an emergency administrative action that applies to all city parks with playground equipment. Those playgrounds are located at Brook Run Park, Dunwoody Park and Nature Center, Georgetown Park, Pernoshal Park and Windwood Hollow Park.

“We’re putting the safety and well-being of children and families first,” said Dunwoody Parks and Recreation Director Brent Walker. “Our trails remain open, but we’re asking people to avoid congregating in groups of 10 or more anywhere in our parks, based on guidance from the CDC.”

For now, park restrooms also remain open and are being cleaned several times a day.


On Friday morning, signs will be placed at the playgrounds to let people know they are closed. The closure will stay in effect until further notice but can be lifted at any time.
