Knight Park-Howell Station is situated northwest of downtown Atlanta, Georgia. It's close proximity to Midtown Atlanta means that it is close to the stylish clubs, bars, and restaurants of the new revamped Midtown. The location also means that puppy facilities are not very far away! From pet stores to puppy-friendly cafes, the surrounding area of Knight Park is very well equipped. Hollywood Feed is the closest pet store, being only a five-minute drive away. This pet store provides everything from large bulk buy dog food to stylish dog toys and collars.
The weather in Georgia during the summertime can get very hot! This is because of the subtropical location of the state. No wonder its famous neighbor is known as the Sunshine State. This combined with the short, mild winters creates the ideal walking conditions all year round. A helpful walking tip is to carry water around with you in summer. That sun can get very hot!
Much like the rest of Atlanta, Knight Park is a very hilly neighborhood. This is due to its close proximity to the Appalachian Mountains. Because of this, Atlanta’s neighborhoods are some of the prettiest in the country. This makes the landscape of Knight Park varied to walk around and the views you can find at the tops of the hills are so fantastic! That is, if you can see over the wonderfully tall trees! The trees that wind up the mountains provide some much-needed shade in summer and are a spectacle of reds and oranges in autumn.
Deodar Cedar is perhaps one of the tallest trees that sit around Knight Park and the famous maple sits under them, creating a mixture of natural environment that meets suburban. Among the trees sits an array of wooden bungalows and red brick houses. These sit a little back from the wide roads while the picket fences line the properties.
Perhaps the best bit about living in Knight Park, if you are a fellow dog owner, is that within its boundary is Westside Reservoir Park. This is an old and renewed granite quarry that now has been turned into a hiking trail and reservoir park. Proctor Creek flows straight through the middle of this green zone, providing a beautiful riverside walk. If this wasn’t enough, forest trails lead around the park towards the large blue turquoise body of water in the middle. This park is best for weekend walks as the whole of it could take you an afternoon to walk around!
If you fancy a smaller walk for a weekday stroll, Grove Park is the place to visit. This park sits right at the southern edge of Westside Reservoir Park and provides everything you could need from picnic benches to signposted walking trails and even playgrounds for the children.
