In my opinion, Dunwoody feels like a high class community. Not only in the fact that middle to upper class families live here, but also because the community of people actually seem to care about their neighborhoods. It's always clean. The parks here are amazing for kids and adults and always have community events that bring everyone out to be social. And the educational choices for our children are amazing.
Review Dunwoody
Dunwoody gives you a great small town feel just outside the big city of Atlanta. The schools are wonderful and the community really comes together for parades, fundraisers, food truck Thursdays, etc. There are great restaurants and shopping right in the village.
I have been living in Dunwoody since 5 years and my experience has been great. It is very quiet yet busy location. There are grocery stores, fast food places, restaurants, church, theaters, banks and almost every necessities in walk-able locations. The are good side walks and the crime rate is minimum. The change I want to see in Dunwoody is to increase the number of street lights. There are few streets which are very dark yet safe but I think people will be more comfortable if the street lights are more.
