Dunwoody celebrates the opening of Two Bridges Park

The first public park in Dunwoody’s Perimeter Center will also feature the city’s first splash pad.

Dunwoody, GA – April 24, 2023 – The Dunwoody community is invited to join in the grand opening of Two Bridges Park on May 6 from noon to 2 p.m. at 50 Perimeter Center East. Two Bridges is the first public park in the Perimeter Center of Dunwoody and the first park in the city with a splash pad.

Members of the Dunwoody City Council, Dunwoody Parks & Recreation, Discover Dunwoody, and the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs) will cut the ribbon on the new playground at noon. At 12:30, they’ll press the button to start the water on the splash pad. Opening day activities will also include free King of Pops popsicles and giveaways for the first 100 guests.

“Thousands of Dunwoody residents will now have green space and park amenities within walking distance,” said Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch. “I am so excited about the park, but I’m especially thrilled that we are able to include the City’s first splash pad at Two Bridges.”

Two Bridges is a five-acre park that features the following:

  • A splash pad that’s 28-feet in diameter
  • An 8,000 square-foot playground that’s ADA compliant
  • Walking trails with a natural surface that travel downhill east from the playground and through the wooded area along the North Fork of Nancy Creek
  • Two picnic pavilions
  • Exercise station
  • Restroom facilities

Two Bridges was originally scheduled to be built in 2020 using hotel/motel taxes. But funding dried up during the pandemic, and plans were put on hold. Last year, Dunwoody City Council approved the use of American Rescue Plan (ARP) funds for the park, which cost $3 million to build.

“The location of this new park expands access to our park system,” said Dunwoody Parks & Recreation Director Brent Walker. “In addition to providing great new amenities, this park also supports our goal of connectivity since it ties into the Dunwoody Trailway and pedestrian bridge over the North Fork of Nancy Creek.”

For this event and future visits, guests are encouraged to walk or ride bikes to Two Bridges Park. Dogs (on a leash!) are also welcome.
