Little ones as young as 4 years old can enjoy the Kiddie Quest ropes experience at Treetop Quest Dunwoody. Kids 7 years and older can play Tarzan on three courses, including a 300-foot zip line, and those over 12 years old have an extra challenge on the fourth course. Bring the whole family for an adventure in the trees! You can read more about our family’s antics here.

Climb and jump at Brook Run Park

Treetop Quest is just at the entrance of Brook Run Park, so don’t be scared to venture in a little farther once you finish your treetop excursion. Brook Run offers an incredible playground with shade awnings, an off-leash dog park, and a skate park arena. Read about Brook Run and other playgrounds we love in Atlanta.

Nothing will help you beat the heat like a frozen custard treat from Village Burger. You can enjoy it on the patio (shade umbrellas included), or take a breather at a table inside. We also LOVE the burgers and onion rings!

Explore Dunwoody Nature Center

You can spend hours and hours at the FREE Dunwoody Nature Center and still not experience all they have to offer. Play in the creek, walk the trails, climb the new playground structures, listen for frogs on the boardwalk….the possibilities are endless. Don’t miss the Dunwoody Butterfly Festival Aug. 20, and see our post on 22 great ways to get more out of the nature center.
