Whittier Mill Village is a unique historic district located on the far northwest corner of Atlanta, Georgia. The neighborhood is located at the site of a former cotton mill and was originally developed in 1895. The neighborhood contains a historic park, a YMCA, and a church. Unfortunately, there are no shops, restaurants, or local services within the community for residents to walk to, making the area a little short on amenities. 


Atlanta dog walkers enjoy warm and sunny spring and fall seasons. During winter months, dog walkers should have warm waterproof jackets and good footwear available. Winters are cool, rainy, and sometimes icy if the temperature drops to the freezing mark. Summers are very hot and humid and heat-related illnesses are a concern for people and pets that overexert themselves or become dehydrated. Drink lots of water, find shady locations to walk, and avoid walking at the height of the day when temperatures become extreme.

Whittier Mill Village is bordered by train tracks on the west side, the Chattahoochee River on the north side, James Jackson Parkway on the east side, and Bolton Road on the south side. The neighborhood has a light industrial area on the south side, new homes on the east side, and older homes on the west side around the old mill park. The older homes are part of the historic village and date back to the late 19th century while newer homes have been built to adhere to historic architectural guidelines. 

 The area is heavily treed and properties have large shade trees. The terrain is fairly level with a few slopes in the region, but nothing that significantly impacts pedestrians on foot. Much of the area does not have sidewalks, so dog walkers have to share roads with cars and other vehicles. Keep your dog leashed and walk facing oncoming traffic so you are aware of approaching cars.

Whittier Mill Park is open to the public, but much of the development and maintenance is conducted by locals. The park is built at the location of an old cotton mill and occupies 22 acres. There is a playground and bocce ball court here and plenty of natural dirt trails, open spaces, and wooded areas to enjoy. The old mill buildings are also located in the area and add a unique ambiance to this historic park.

Chattahoochee Park is located in the south next to the YMCA facility. Sports and recreation fields and facilities are located here as well as natural open spaces and a wooded area with thick trees that provide shade to people and pets in the summer.

Riverside Park is a natural wooded area located on the west border of Whittier Mill Village. Natural trails in and around the trees provide shady spots for a walk on hot Atlanta summer days.
