Dunwoody city officials have approved spending $174,280 to finance five projects to improve city-owned facilities in city parks.

Three of the projects are at the Dunwoody Nature Center. The center plans to spend $44,000 to expand its classroom space and adding a deck, to spend $45,000 to create an accessible entrance that meets requirements of the American with Disabilities Act, and to spend $20,000 to provide better access to public restrooms.

The other projects will spend $24,980 on facilities improvements at the Spruill Arts Center and $40,000 to level the Dunwoody Park baseball fields used by Dunwoody Senior Baseball.

“What we’re doing is investing in our own facilities,” City Manager Warren Hutmacher told members of City Council during the council’s May 13 meeting.
