At A Glance
Since its development began in the early 1900s, Peachtree Heights East has maintained a perfectly charming atmosphere that harkens back to its founding days. Duck Pond Park in the center of Peachtree Heights East is the neighborhood’s own storybook setting admired by all who visit.
Peachtree Heights East is a small neighborhood known to many as simply “the duck pond neighborhood.” The Ladies of the Lake (LOL) Garden Club welcomes new residents and runs neighborhood social events. Their annual fundraiser, held the first Sunday in May, is a much-looked-forward-to event for the whole Buckhead community, as is their Holiday Home Tour.See Peachtree Heights East Homes for Sale

Peachtree Heights East consists of a neat and tidy rectangle set between Peachtree Road (west) and Acorn Avenue (east) and East Wesley Road on the North and Lindbergh Drive on the South.

Around The Block
For over 100 years, Duck Pond has been the communal center of the neighborhood. This tiny paradise in the city has been lovingly preserved, protected, and cultivated by the proud residents.
A neighborhood band of ducks routinely waddles past neighbors without so much as a second look, since “no feeding the ducks” warnings are in effect.
This active neighborhood supports several groups to enhance the community. The Peachtree Heights East Neighborhood Association operates a security patrol and offers member discounts for Duck Pond Park event rentals.
