Facility Rentals and Private Events

Secluded in the city, Dunwoody Nature Center is tucked away in the trees just outside of the Atlanta perimeter but close to everything. Host your event at the Nature Center, the natural choice. Our versatile venue is perfect for weddings, corporate events, family reunions, birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, showers, cultural gatherings, and your event.

Coming Soon

North Woods Pavilion

Dunwoody Nature Center is excited to announce the construction of our brand new event facility opening later this summer. The North Woods Pavilion will be an elegant indoor-outdoor convertible space perched on the hill overlooking the Meadow. Our largest event space will be complete with a warming kitchen, a two-sided fire place, and a wrap-around deck.

The Porch is a party in the shade and in the sunshine. Our spacious screened-in porch extends off of the back of the education main building. Surrounded by a wrap-around deck, guests can enjoy the view from above or walk down the connecting steps into the beautiful Meadow.

This gorgeous, open area of our park showcases many attractions including Wildcat Creek, multiple gardens, and the stage and historic fireplace. Events here have easy access to the Fern Glade entrance to all of our walking trails as well as to multiple picnic tables and Adirondack chairs. Because the Meadow is the heart of the Dunwoody Nature Center, Meadow rentals may only be confirmed in a package along with both the Porch and the Pavilion.
