Dunwoody Park began as a part of America’s Bicentennial celebrations in 1975 when a group of citizens petitioned DeKalb County to purchase the acreage known as Dunwoody Park with a federal grant.  We aim to inspire the love of nature and cultivate environmental understanding and stewardship through a variety of programs and activities that engage the public and provide our community with a sense of place within the natural world.  

As a private, non-profit organization operating primarily out of a municipal park, the Nature Center enjoys a strong and supportive public/private partnership with the City of Dunwoody.  In addition to running mission based programs throughout the year, we are committed to enhancing and preserving Dunwoody Park for the enjoyment of the community.

We are a living lab that is environmentally sustainable, inclusive and accessible to all.
