More than 45 residents gathered at St. Partrick’s Episcopal Church on Dec. 11 to discuss what should be included in Brook Run Park, the city of Dunwoody largest park.

Suggestions ranged from an open lawn with a band shell to flower gardens to areas for pickup baseball and football games.

“I think we’ve had a really wonderful exchange of ideas, I do,” said Donna Hardesty, one of several residents of the Lakeview Oaks neighborhood who attended the planning meeting to tell  planners the dog park in Brook Run now abuts their community and should be moved to another part of the park.

Planners from Lose and Associates are to draw up a new master plan for Brook Run. The planners put together the gathering Dec. 11 to hear what residents wanted from the park. The cosultant’s report is due in February.
