Situated far northwest of Atlanta is Almond Park. It is a large community populated with homes thinly sprinkled around the neighborhood consisting of small bungalows and two-story apartment blocks. The community is located just west of Westside Reservoir and Grove Park. The classic Atlanta railway that passes just over the north of the community lends itself to the history and is a key characteristic of many local neighborhoods. Almond Park is a modest and humble community with many convenience shops and puppy-friendly facilities. Located a ten-minute drive away is Love Those Dogs Inc., a local favorite pet salon and groomer.
The long hot summers of Almond Park can be attributed to the subtropical region of Atlanta. This combined with the distinct seasons of autumn and spring make the neighborhood flourish with colorful leaves all year round. This is offset by the whites in the granite quarry of Westside Reservoir, making the neighborhood an extremely interesting place to visit.
The neighborhood of Almond Park is rather spread out with woodland filling the gaps between the clusters of residential housing. There is plenty of space to wander through the trees of the woodlands or the local streets. This adds to the natural element of the community. Combine this with Westside Reservoir Park to the east and the landscape seems effortlessly rural. A bonus to this community is that each road is wide enough for you to feel safe while walking your pooch on the leash.
Depending on where you are in Almond Park makes all the difference when it comes to the topography. While walking around the neighborhood’s residential area, it remains rather flat. However, because of the mining history in the granite quarry of Westside Reservoir Park, if you were to venture there, the topography is very different. There are plenty of steep hills and valleys for you and your pup to get yourselves stuck into.
A fantastic green space that borders Almond Park is Rockdale Reservoir. $26 million has recently been put into developing the 280-acre park. The main focus of this investment has been to create footpaths and cycling trails around the whole of the reservoir while maintaining the natural beauty of the landscape. The former granite quarry was also a popular spot for filming various television shows. Grove Park is just to the south of the reservoir and is a great space to take the family. Here there are children’s playgrounds, large fields, and picnic facilities.
If this wasn't enough, Center Hill Park is a small green space, perfect for daily walks with your pup. This park is only a five-minute walk away from the center of the community and boasts a large field and footpaths for all your dog walking needs. The size of the park means that you’ll only need to spend around 20 minutes here, the perfect allottment for a morning walk.
