At A Glance
A tightly knit community with urban perks, residents of the Garden Hills neighborhood will be the first to tell you just how wonderful it is! Winding streets are lined with sidewalks and mature trees, beautiful parks, and landscaped traffic islands in this social neighborhood. Garden Hills is a great location within walking distance to world-class dining and shopping of the adjacent Buckhead Village.
This historic Buckhead neighborhood was founded in 1925, and families still enjoy the simple but fun amenities and monthly social events that originated nearly 100 years ago. Active neighborhood groups include the Historic Garden Hills Neighborhood Foundation and Garden Club.See Garden Hills Homes for Sale
What We Love
One of Buckhead’s truly walkable communities. The Garden Hills pool is a local treasure and gathering point.
What We Don’t
Some of the interior streets are used as cut-throughs by motorists.
Garden Hills homes for sale include plenty of new construction, but the most desirable homes are usually the restored homes from the 1920s-1930s. Prices range from $500,000 to $3 million.
Garden Hills is nestled between Peachtree and Piedmont roads, bordered by Lindbergh Drive on the south.
Around The Block
The neighborhood’s location just off Peachtree Road is walkable to the Buckhead Farmers Market and the rapidly developing shopping and dining in Buckhead Village.
The Voluntary Civic Association traces it’s origin back more than 80 years, providing a forum for neighborhood feedback and linkage to elected officials and municipal planning organizations. They also regularly organize block parties, tree plantings, and park clean up. The Garden Club hosts ice cream socials in the fall, and the foundation hosts an annual neighborhood gala.
The unofficial heart of the neighborhood is the recently renovated Garden Hills Pool and Rec Center, first built in the 1930s. Leased from the city and run by the neighborhood, it includes a ball field, playground, community center, and pool house. Many residents purchase memberships, but guests can swim on a daily basis as well. The pool is home to the Cool Sharks Swim and Dive Team, where neighborhood kids compete all around metro Atlanta.
Frankie Allen Park is a very popular gathering spot for baseball games and outdoor recreation.
