Below the Chattahoochee River and just northwest of downtown Atlanta is a small community called Fernleaf. This neighborhood lies in the historic town of Buckhead, a region that is now a part of Atlanta city itself. Fernleaf consists of two long roads: Fernleaf Circle and Fernleaf Court. It is a great location just outside of Peachtree's corridor, a road that connects the community to stylish restaurants, bars, and cafes. The affluent neighborhood is situated next to Buckhead's prized art galleries and charming boutiques.
In addition, the neighborhood is a fifteen-minute drive from the center of Atlanta, providing the community with plenty of doggy-friendly amenities. One of the local favorites is Pet Gallery Inc., a groomer and pet store offering everything from luxury treats to indulgent grooming products.
Spanning six blocks at Peachtree's intersection is the newly developed luxury dining and shopping district, a great attraction to dog owners due to its outside pedestrianized areas.
While most of Atlanta varies in the hilly terrain, Fernleaf remains rather gentle. While wandering through the few streets that make up the community, it becomes quite a treat. The calm scenic neighborhood is influenced by the quiet and slow speed of cars that also drive through. The slow pace of life creates a friendly atmosphere amongst the community and it wouldn’t be unusual to stop and have a chat with neighbors.
The large wooden houses that sit back from the road add to the affluence of the area. The short drives that sit before them create a rather secluded charming feel. Aside from the beautiful houses and road network of Fernleaf, the community remains rather natural. Along Fernleaf Circle, tall trees sit amongst the houses and make the neighborhood feel rather countrified and rural. The raw and rustic feel of Fernleaf creates the ideal spot to walk with your four-legged friend.
Spink Collins Park is the ultimate dog walking zone in the area. It's great for those daily dog walks as the park takes around 30 minutes to walk around. The woodland trails that wind through and the tall trees that tower above create a scenic view all year round from the autumn when the leaves turn into reds, oranges, and golds to the spring when the baby leaves start to grow.
Within the neighborhood is Galloway Softball Field. This is the community's favorite sports ground that also doubles as an excellent dog walking green space, when no one is playing, of course. Inside the softball field's gates is an awesome location for some puppy training. Teach them to recall or fetch in the knowledge that they are perfectly safe off the leash. Around the field, there are footpaths, picnic benches, and even a community center, providing a great open space to take the family.
