Give me a call if you are going out and I meet you. Just go home from airport and going to charge battery.

The City of Dunwoody sold the property I believe to two different companies. Could be one. It's just a matter of time before they distroy DFC-2. The original intent was for it to be a park but the citizens voted it down. Few far sighted residents in Dunwoody anymore. BTW, on the other side of Shallowford, where the hospital once stood is another small area for park flyers. I have not flown there - yet.

Just what we need.... Another crappy strip mall or mixed use condo development that remain vacant. Don't people understand supply and demand- the bubble has burst and 2013 does not look good fiscally speaking.

it is a term heard all too often in real estate: highest and best use.

Parks are rarely given any considerations...

Yup. Parks don't generate revenue like that of a well planned development. Unless your name is Disney

It's kinda depressing to see it go away. I could see myself really enjoying dfc2 for DLG.

Hasn't gone away yet but it's time is limited. The other site is just north and across Shallowford Rd.from DFC-2. If you turn left to leave DFC-2 you come up to Shallowford Rd. Look SLIGHTLY TO THE RIGHT and you should see a "cleared" strip. It's slightly below street grade and not as large an area as DFC-1 or 2.

Also, over where the mental health facility was (Brook Run Park) there is a reasonable field for DLG, micros, park flyers and helis. It's off New Peachtree Rd.
