In the heart of Buckhead is a 200-acre park named Atlanta Memorial Park. Just northwest of this lies a community named after the park. It is a small community consisting of large manor houses and Victorian and Georgian style mansions. The neighborhood prides itself on its rich sense of community along with its well kept front yards and flower beds planted along each street.
The location of Memorial Park is one of its best features. It's a ten-minute drive from downtown Atlanta in the heart of Buckhead with a great park to complement it. There is no shortage of facilities here to provide for you and your four-legged friend.
Just like its neighbor, the Sunshine State, Georgia experiences pleasant weather all year round. With long, hot summers and mild winters, the climate provides you with ample opportunity to get outside and enjoy the outdoors with your puppy pal.
This residential neighborhood is the perfect balance between the urbanization that took Atlanta during the installation of the railroads and natural environment it once was. The long streets of the community are dappled with a mixture of magnificent brick and wooden houses, just set back off the road to give a grandiose feel. An endearing characteristic of the homes around this neighborhood are the small front porches that house little chairs and swings for the families that live here. This contributes to the overwhelming sense of community and is really appreciated here when walking around.
The topography of Memorial Park is mainly flat with only a few roads experiencing a small gradient. This makes the community a pleasant area to walk around due to the ease and simplicity of the stroll. Encompassed in the community is Atlanta Memorial Park where there is a variety of flat walking trails and hilly hiking paths to give you choices to explore.
Within the community's boundaries is Atlanta Memorial Park. Besides the 200 acres of land to explore, the park also holds a creek which provides a riverside walking trail. If this isn't enough, the family-friendly green space holds a children’s playground, picnic benches, and tennis courts. This is the ideal park for a weekend walk with the family as it can provide hours of amusement while keeping your pooch entertained.
For a smaller walk that would be ideal for daily strolls with your pup, why not try Beaverbrook Park and Gardens? This green space is a modest park with a field and footpaths that wind around the spotless flower beds and vegetation. The entrance is just a five-minute walk from the center of Memorial Park, making it the most idyllic location. To add to this, Cross Creek Golf Course is just a ten-minute drive away and Spring Lake Park is a fantastic green space if you fancy a change.
