Spruce up at Brook Run Park. Have you noticed the gorgeous new plantings in front of Brook Run Park on North Peachtree Road?

If you drove by Friday last week, you would have seen members of the Dunwoody Garden Club hard at work at installation day for the club’s latest project. The results are stunning.

Preparations began last month when Brent Walker, Dunwoody’s Parks and Recreation director, coordinated pressure washing of the entrance sign and installed a water source.

Meanwhile, garden club members worked with Scott Pluckhahn, a 1983 Dunwoody High School graduate and chief horticulturalist and designer from Hastings to select the plants and landscape plan and to prepare the soil.

The 16 varieties of plants include hydrangeas, gardenias and camelias, plus five kaleidoscope abelias, five gold mop cypress and three tutti frutti butterfly bushes.

The group will next move to the left side of the entrance to coordinate a new plan and to maintain the trimming and ongoing maintenance for the project.

December 25 not your holiday? If you happen to be looking for something to do Christmas day, check out the full day of family fun and entertainment sponsored by the Marcus Jewish Community Center.

The free day of fun begins and 11 a.m. and runs through 4 p.m. with a sing-along with Rabbi Glusman, inflatables, swiming, activities and crafts plus open play and pick-up basketball in the gym, family-friendly movies in the theater and food for sale.
