The Perimeter Community Improvement Districts have developed possible designs for a proposed new park at the Dunwoody MARTA station.

The park is proposed on about 5 acres beneath the MARTA tracks. The preliminary designs feature walking paths around and bridges over a stream through the area. Consultants working with the PCIDs also propose dramatically lighting the columns holding up the MARTA tracks above the park.

The park, called Perimeter Park @ Dunwoody MARTA Station, would be located between the loop road around Perimeter Mall and Perimeter Center Parkway NE.

About two dozen residents and local officials examined the plans during a gathering at Dunwoody City Hall on May 29. For more information or to comment on the plans, go to and click on “projects.”

Two Master Plans have been proposed. Master Plan 1, above, offers an information kiosk and Master Plan 2 (below) offers a water feature at the south entrance.
