The West Highlands are situated to the northwest of Atlanta. The residential area of the community is new, with modern houses placed along the streets of east West Highlands. The area gives off a gentrified feel and is warm and inviting to visit. The newness of the community is balanced by the classic rail tracks that run to the north, placing the history of Atlanta itself in the impression of newly built West Highlands.
The community is in the ideal location, only a 20-minute drive from the center of downtown Atlanta, a neighbor to the famous Westside Reservoir Park, and within proximity to the Chattahoochee River. The facilities for your four-legged friend here are endless from puppy-friendly cafes to pet stores that pride themselves on knowledgeable staff.
The subtropical location of the state of Georgia influences the four distinct seasons that are experienced by the city and the famous long, hot summers of Atlanta are married by their short mild winters.
West Highlands is a sparse community with only a few residential roads mixed in with large open fields and gigantic wild forests to the west. This creates a very natural and rural feel among the community. From afar, the dark green peaks of the forest trees make the region feel beautifully and handsomely uncultivated. The rolling fields behind leaves ample space for you and your pooch to play.
The newly built community is almost all flat which is great for an easy stroll with your pup. The modern roads create a seamless surface, resulting in a smooth and easily walkable sidewalk. Due to the gentrification of the area, the actual residential region of the community feels and looks rather artificial. This, however, doesn’t take away from the beauty as the clean lines in between the sidewalk and grassy verges create a clean and tidy look.
West Highlands is home to some great outdoor spaces from the wild forests in the west to the rolling fields behind them. It is also a neighbor to Westside Reservoir Park. This park is a newly developed old granite quarry. The history of the site contributes to the landscape. Large hills and valleys lay across the area due to the mining that used to take place here. The bending landscape creates a rather scenic view and the now reservoir in the middle forms a beautiful body of water.
Within the local community is Hemen E. Perry Park. The park contains plenty of amenities to provide you with a great daily walk with winding footpaths, picnic benches, and even a lake at the center. The position of the park is ideal as it is situated right in the middle of the streets and roads that bend round West Highlands. This means that from any street you are within a five-minute walk away from the green space.
