Bagley Park

At A Glance

Bagley Park (formerly known as Frankie Allen Park) is a handy recreation area in Buckhead’s Garden Hills neighborhood near Buckhead Village. The park is best known for hosting Buckhead Baseball, but there is much more to do! The park’s well-maintained baseball facilities dominate the front of the park, along with four well-maintained tennis courts. The park continues past the baseball fields along both sides of Bagley Street, with several paved picnic areas that include tables and grilling facilities.

Be sure to visit the historic cemetery at the front of the park along Pharr Road. The graves here represent the last remaining structures of a once-vibrant African-American community that occupied the park site. From The Buckhead Heritage Society: “Formerly enslaved people founded a community where the park is now in the 1870s. In 1929, William Bagley purchased six lots there after being forced to flee his 84-acre Forsyth County farm in 1912. He was a well-respected community leader. While developer Frank C. Owens laid out a formal neighborhood that he called Macedonia Park in 1921, the area became known colloquially as Bagley Park.”

The park was known as Frankie Allen Park until it was renamed for community founder William Bagley in December of 2022. For more information about the history of Bagley Park, visit
