Dunwoody plans to reopen some park facilities and parts of City Hall on Monday.

According to a statement from the city, the “slow and limited reopening” will begin with the reopening of:

  • Tennis courts
  • Park restrooms that are not next to playgrounds
  • Athletic fields for unorganized play (team sports are still not allowed; groups must spread out to ensure social distancing)

Indoor recreational facilities will set their own reopening plans, the city said. If this initial phase goes smoothly, the skate park, dog park and playgrounds will reopen in the coming weeks, possibly by June 1, officials said.

“I’ve been encouraged to see neighbors showing respect to one another in our parks and sharing the space carefully,” Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch said in a statement. “Though we will begin offering more options next week, the virus remains contagious. We need to continue to take care of ourselves and others.”

City Hall will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, but residents are encouraged to email or call for services that do not need to be handled in person.

A representative for the police department is available at all hours at City Hall. The Dunwoody Municipal Court remains closed.
