Come join me for a fun night hike at Pernoshal & Brook Run Parks in Dunwoody. We will be hiking at a moderate 3.0 pace on a concrete trail.

There are bathroom facilities at this site.

Pernoshal Park opened 4/23/16. It is a 5-acre park that includes a pavilion, bathrooms, basketball courts, a pickle-ball court, a large open field area for play and a connecter trail which crosses Nancy Creek to Brook Run Park.

Pickle-ball was invented in 1965 on Bainbridge Island, outside Seattle, WA. The goal of Pickle-ball then and now was to create a game that is fun for every member of the family. It is a fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. It is played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net. It is played with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes and as doubles or singles.

Brook Run Park opened in approximately 2011. It is a 102-acre park and is the largest park in Dunwoody. The park features include a large children’s playground, 2-mile trail loop, skate park, dog park, community garden, and event facility.

PLEASE arrive by 7:50 pm for time to use restroom facilities, socializing & introductions. Out of respect for the majority of people who arrive on time, we will leave PROMPTLY at 8:00 pm.

Out of respect for the majority of people who arrive on time, we will start the hike  PROMPTLY at 8:00 pm.

Pre-Hike Snack/Dinner at Cafe Sababa - Mediterranean Grill (see Notes for details).An Israeli native prepares Middle Eastern fare such as shawarma & kabobs. In both Hebrew and Arabic, the word “sababa” is slang for “awesome,” “fun,” or “cool.”.

Come shine your light on a fun trail through the parks & woods.
