A family-friendly, peaceful and picturesque little neighborhood sitting on the edge of Midtown Atlanta is Castlewood. The community is characterized by its tree-lined streets and elegant homes that sit just back from the road. The streets are spread out across this neighborhood with large houses sitting steadily placed along each lane, giving the community a grandiose yet organized design.
The neighborhood, much like the rest of Atlanta, benefits from four distinct seasons. After the short mild winters come the fresh vibrant spring with a long hot summer and beautiful colourful fall.
The location of Castlewood provides the community with plenty of conveniences to suit you and your pup. The Wagging in Style pet groomers and puppy supply store is in the ideal location, just a ten-minute drive away between Castlewood and Midtown Atlanta. Here, they provide you with the know-how from the best puppy treats to what the best doggy shampoo is!
The roads and streets of Castlewood are fairly spread out giving you and your pup the opportunity to roam. In front and behind each house is acres of grassland giving the sense of rurality in an ultimately urbanized community. This is ideal when walking your pup as there is an ease with the paved paths, but a sense of nature and wildlife from the tall trees and vegetation. The neighborhood is almost entirely residential and this contributes to the slow pace of life here. You won't find fast moving cars or loud noises from the traffic. This adds to the peaceful, effortlessness of the dog walk!
The neighborhood is fairly hilly with most streets offering at least a mild incline. The topography of the landscape, however, does provide the community with a unique feel. The roads wind up and down the steady valleys of the neighborhood, distinctive of the classic region.
Castlewood as a neighborhood does not hold a green space itself, however, just a five-minute drive away is Atlanta Memorial Park. The park hosts a massive 200 acres of green space. Combine this with the nature trails and picnic facilities and it is the ideal place for a walk with your four-legged friend! The park showcases Atlanta’s natural charm and ecological beauty to form an area combining open fields, a river, and clusters of woodland.
A whole host of conveniences are provided by the park. To the west is Cross Creek Golf Club, tennis courts, and children adventure parks. In addition, Petco Animal Supplies backs onto the park, making it the ideal shop to swing by to grab your pup a well-deserved treat.
The park is now working towards an ecological volunteer program, removing invasive species of plants and promoting the natural environment. This has encouraged the park to flourish, making it the neighborhood's favorite.
