There are some challenges for pedestrians throughout the North Buckhead neighborhood. First, sidewalks seem sporadically placed in this neighborhood, meaning you might end up sharing the roadways with other pedestrians, cyclists, and traffic. Please always exercise caution while out for a walk and, during the evenings, it's recommended to have some reflective gear. Additionally, this neighborhood can be quite hilly in some areas, so if you or Fido have any mobility issues, be sure to figure out a safe route!The boundaries of North Buckhead include Meadowbrook Drive to the north, Peachtree Dunwoody Drive to the east, Peachtree Road to the south, and Piedmont Road to the west. As an expansive neighborhood, other major roadways through North Buckhead include Lenox Road, T. Harvey Mathis Parkway, West Wieuca Road, Loridans Drive, and Old Ivy Road. Other pockets of this neighborhood are more residential and should not have as much high-speed or congested traffic.
Located on the western border of North Buckhead, you will find the largest greenway in the neighborhood: the Blue Heron Nature Preserve. These 30 acres of protected land help conserve some of the natural environment, given Atlanta's more urban terrain. Pups are welcome in the Blue Heron Nature Preserve, but they must be leashed during your visit.
