Pine Hills, as a residential community, is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes. These are typically in mid-century modern designs, however, there are a few apartment and condo complexes on the western side of the neighborhood.
Pine Hills also has a few non-residential properties. This neighborhood boasts access to public transportation, a few hotels, restaurants, the Consulate of Guatemala in Atlanta, a swim and tennis club, and a convenience store. There is also a larger, well-known shopping complex, or mall, in an adjacent neighborhood.
As a suburb of Atlanta, Pine Hills is composed of artificial and manicured terrain. There is a large creek that runs through the southern part of the neighborhood, but still very few natural greenways for you and your pup to explore.
The boundaries of Pine Hills roughly include East Paces Ferry Road and the railroad to the north, East Roxboro Road to the east, Buford Highway to the south, and Lenox Road to the west. Thankfully, most of the roadways inside this neighborhood are in the residential areas, so only the boundaries should have higher-speed and congested traffic.
However, the larger of the two greenways is accessible! Shady Valley Park is home to a small playground, some tennis courts, and a basketball court. Known for its large trees and shade on hot summer days, this would be a great place for you and your furry friend to visit while out getting some exercise. Fido, however, will need to remain leashed.
Thankfully, the nearest dog park isn't too far away! Located in the neighborhood immediately to the east, you will find Lenox Park and the Lenox Park Dog Park. Less than a mile walk from the northern side of Pine Hills, this small park is perfect if Fido needs some off-leash or socializing time!
