Ormewood Park is a neighborhood on the east side of Atlanta, Georgia. The community is a mixture of old scattered wooden houses in between large Victorian and craftsman homes. The neighborhood is immersed in history, dating back to when the Creek Indian Nation called the area home to the construction boom after World War One. This enormous sense of history in the community means that old houses live among new, creating character and uniqueness.
The weather in Ormewood is much to be celebrated just like the history. With four diverse seasons, the neighborhood experiences an abundance of color. In the hot summers, fresh greens live amongst the trees and, in autumn, these fresh tones turn to seasonal reds and oranges. The scenic nature makes the area great for walking your pup.
The location of Ormewood Park makes owning a dog here easy! With plenty of green space, puppy facilities such as pet stores and vets, and puppy-friendly cafes, you’ll never be left wanting more!
The neighborhood has a much denser housing population than the communities to the south. One reason for this is the history of the area with waves of renovation throughout the past 100 years. The streets are a mixture of classic style houses mixed among the modern. For this reason, the houses are set fairly close to the streets, giving the community a suburban-residential feel.
The topography is much like most of Atlanta with pockets of flat areas mixed with areas of sharp incline. Walking your pup around here, you can choose if you want a workout or not! An advantage to this neighborhood is that sidewalks line both sides of the road, giving you and your pooch plenty of space to walk.
The area, although residential, still holds a natural feel with tall Birch and Maple trees lining the streets. The closer you get to downtown Atlanta, the more urbanized the neighborhood starts to feel.
An extremely popular and well known green space next to Ormewood Park is Grant Park. Built in the 1800s, it is one of the largest open spaces in the area. The park holds many family-friendly and pet-friendly amenities and even contains a zoo! Spread over 151 acres, there is plenty of space to get your feet stuck into, meaning you’ll never get bored!
To the east is Brownwood Park, an equally lovely park that holds more a community feel because of its smaller size. It contains plenty of space for your pup to run around with nature trails and footpaths to enjoy. The park also holds a recreation center with picnic benches and barbecue facilities. It's a great location to soak up the summer sun! A great advantage to this is that the park is fenced off. While allowing your pooch off the leash, you can keep your mind at ease that they’ll be safe to run around here!
