Collier Hills is an affluent neighborhood nestled in the valleys of Northern Atlanta. The community is far north of downtown Atlanta and is situated within the region of Buckhead. The history of Buckhead dates back to 1838 when a small tavern was built at the now intersection of Peachtree, Roswell, and West Paces Ferry Roads. From this, a rural community was born and the town of Buckhead was established. In 1952, the quiet region of Buckhead was annexed to Atlanta and the once peaceful town became a hustling and bustling suburb.
The neighborhood of Collier Hills is beautiful all year round with warm, long summers and mild winters. The four distinct seasons have their own colorful palate to complement the leaves on the trees from golds, reds, and oranges in autumn to vibrant greens in spring.
Surrounding Colliers Hills are plenty of puppy-friendly stores and amenities such as Petco to the north and PetSmart to the south.
The neighborhood is built upon the hills and valleys of Buckhead. This makes the topography unique as the gradient of the community can vary depending on where you're walking your four-legged friend. Often, roads will be completely flat with a large dip spanning only a few yards in length and then returning back to the flat landscape before. This can be experienced on Greystone Road at the center of the community. Some roads also just have one steady incline to the bottom of the road meaning that, although the road isn’t flat, the gradient is small and is easily walkable.
The area is all residential with houses set back from the street and large lawns leading up to the front porch of the house. This affluent community is rather artificial, however, the well-kept renaissance of Collier Hills, including the newly mowed lawns and pristine flower beds, make the community feel somewhat natural.
Collier Hills is home to two greenways which are perfect for taking your pooch. The smallest local favorite is Spring Valley Park. This is the ideal park to take your pup on your daily dog walk. To stroll around the whole of the grounds takes around 25 minutes with the option of adding footpaths or taking a shortcut. You can cater the park to any walking time you desire! The park is home to tall trees and a creek that runs through the middle, creating a scenic and exciting walking destination.
A bigger park in the community is Tanyard Creek Park and Urban Creek Forest. This greenway is ideal for weekend walking as you can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours strolling around. Let your dog off the leash in the fields and find them friends on the woodland trails. The park provides endless amounts of fun for you, your family, and your pooch.
