Treetop Quest in Dunwoody

Another outdoor hot spot, Brook Run Park, is the largest park in Dunwoody and the region. The park includes an enormous playground, a skate park, a new 2-mile trail loop, an enclosed dog park and a community garden and event facilities.

Brook Run Park also houses Treetop Quest, where guests can explore up to 55 feet above ground zip lining across 200 feet through the park. With 52 obstacles and 12 zip lines in four courses, including a low ropes course for children called Kiddie Quest, Treetop Quest has aerial activities for families and groups of all ages. It’s open Thanksgiving weekend!! What a fun way to work off the turkey.

While the Dunwoody Food Truck Thursdays are closed for winter, you can still enjoy a family picnic in the crisp weather and fall leaves. Grab a sandwich box lunch from Alon’s Bakery and Market, or make your own lunch using Emily G’s jelly, which is headquartered right in Dunwoody.
