Westhaven is a neighborhood located on the west side of Atlanta, Georgia. The neighborhood is residential, but there is commercial activity on the southern border. Shops, restaurants, and other local services can be reached on foot along this main thoroughfare, however, the train tracks along Westhaven’s south border decrease this area's walkability.
