Carver Hills, however, is strictly a residential community with many standalone, single-family homes and an apartment complex on the east side of the neighborhood. There is also a small grocery store on one of the eastern borders.
As a true Southern city, Atlanta experiences a more mild winter with only rare snowfall and brutally hot and humid summers. Spring and fall months boast mild temperatures and average rainfall.
In terms of walking around, Carver Hills does have some challenges. First, there are no sidewalks in this neighborhood and, second, it is quite hilly. So always make sure you have Fido on a safe leash. Additionally, always be aware of your surroundings as you will be sharing the roadways with other pedestrians and oncoming traffic.
The boundaries of Carver Hills include Abner Place to the north, Perry Boulevard to the east, Proctor Creek to the south, and Hollywood Road to the west. Thankfully, this residential neighborhood doesn't have major roadways going through it, so you and Fido shouldn't have to deal with high-speed traffic.
Thankfully, there are several other greenways located in Carver Hills' surrounding neighborhoods. These include Lillian Cooper Shepherd Park, Jackson Trace, Carey Park, AD Williams Park, Herman E. Perry Park, Westside Reservoir Park, and Center Hill Park.
Unfortunately, there are no dog parks close to Carver Hills and you would have to travel quite a distance to find one of these off-leash areas.
