Dunwoody residents have a chance to name the city’s newest park at Pernoshal Court, Bob Mullen, a spokesman for the city, said.
The new park when completed will be approximately five acres and it will be the largest newly-built park created since incorporation. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2015, Mullen said. In addition to the multi-use trail, the park will have a centralized pavilion/restroom facility, 162 parking spaces for park and trail users, passive and active open areas/fields for sports and basketball courts with a pickleball court overlay.
The “Name Your Park” contest begins Aug. 5 and runs through Sept. 30. The contest provides an opportunity for city residents to vote on potential park names or provide a write-in name.
The five potential park name selections are Pernoshal Park, Hightower Trail Park, Muskogee Park, Old Buck Park, and Magnolia Park.
Contest participants will be limited to one vote per person. After all votes are submitted, the winning name will be identified by city staff and announced by the Mayor and City Council on Dec. 14 at the 6 p.m. City Council Meeting.
Interested residents can participate in the contest by registering at the “Name Your Park” online contest portal at www.connectdunwoody.com.
