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
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.
I have been living in Dunwoody for the past 5 years. This area is safer than the neighborhood that I used to live in. There have been projects to improve the area, such a new housing complex, a new park, and redoing the roads. The schools in Dunwoody are nice, the shopping centers are close to my home, and they offer a lot of products. The city isn't as diverse as I would like it to be. The residents of this city are nice. I wish it wasn't as expensive and it had more to offer such as entertainment centers.
