About the Potential Park Names:

1.    Pernoshal Park

  • The new park is located off of Pernoshal Court and North Shallowford Road. The name, Pernoshal Park, references the park’s location and connects it to the Georgetown area.

2.    Hightower Trail Park

  • Hightower (Etowah) Trail, one of the best-marked Indian Trails in Georgia, was a much-used crossover between two of the noted Trading Paths radiating from Augusta. Recognized as a former boundary between Cherokee and Creek lands, a part of it became, by Act of General Assembly 1822, the boundary line between Gwinnett and DeKalb Counties. Early families settled along the trail and it remained a main road until the 1840’s. Segments of it have been abandoned but many sections remain in use as part of present day roads. The name is believed to come from the Cherokee, Ita-Wa.

3.    Muskogee Park

  • The native people of Georgia and the Dunwoody area were the Muskogee (Creek) Indian tribes. The Muskogee Indians raised their families, hunted, and farmed Dunwoody land for generations, as far back as 400 A.D. 

4.    Old Buck Park

  • Old Buck was the one car train that ran from Chamblee to the Chattahoochee River, across from Roswell for 44 years. The train brought goods and carried people, an important part of Dunwoody’s development, until the line was discontinued in 1921.

5.    Magnolia Park

  • The magnolia flower is seen as the essential southern bloom. The delicate white flowers are only part of the large dignified trees that provide shade and beauty to any park.
