Wag! Walkers know Bankhead

Bankhead is a mixed-use neighborhood located centrally in Atlanta, Georgia on the west side of the downtown area. There are businesses located on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard that are within walking distance for area residents including a service station, grocery stores, local eateries, and several other services. 


Atlanta pedestrians and their pups experience peasant walking temperatures in the winter, spring, and fall. Winters are mild with temperatures usually well above freezing and little chance of snowfall. Summers are hot and humid and severe storms are a possibility. Temperatures in the Atlanta area often reach well into the 90-degree Fahrenheit range and, coupled with humidity, can be uncomfortable. Avoid walking with your dog during the height of the day when extreme heat occurs. Be aware that severe tornadoes and tropical cyclones are possible and do not venture out with your dog when these storms are imminent. 

What is the terrain like in Bankhead?

Bankhead is a mixed residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhood. The area is a long established and historic district located centrally just west of the business core and downtown area of Atlanta. 


The west side of the neighborhood has industrial and city services located throughout it and there is some undeveloped land along the Proctor Creek ravine. Natural areas usually make good places to stroll with your dog, but the industrial activity in the area may impede the walkability of this section of the neighborhood. There are very large shade trees throughout the neighborhood and properties have plenty of vegetation and greenery which provide shade and create a cool canopy for dog walkers on hot, humid summer days.


There are some gentle inclines in the neighborhood, but they do not usually present a problem. Retail streets do not always have separate sidewalks for pedestrians who must share the road with vehicles. Keep your dog leashed and walk facing oncoming traffic.

How many greenways are there in Bankhead?

Maddox Park is located in the Bankhead neighborhood and provides 51 acres of community park for residents to enjoy with their pets. The park is part of the Atlanta Beltline which is being developed as a multi-use trail.  


Grove Park and the Westside Reservoir Park are located nearby. Grove Park has a recreation center and sports facilities and fields such as tennis courts and a baseball diamond. There are lots of trees and open areas in the park and pedestrian paths where dog walkers can enjoy the activities taking place.  


The Westside Reservoir Park has a water-filled reservoir and lots of natural trails and maintenance roads that local dog owners take their pets along. Plans include developed trails and a dog park as well as many amenities which will enhance this large green space and make it more user-friendly for local pets and pet owners.
