Ormewood Park Townhouses
Hidden gems and historical treasures can be found in the charming neighborhood of Ormewood Park, located on the east side of Atlanta. The area is known for its preservation of historic buildings, with some original buildings from the 1980s still standing today.
The area grew in popularity after WWI, once the Atlanta Electric Light & Trolley Co. extended into the area making it more accessible for excited home buyers. After the second World War, another residential boom occurred, leaving the area with preserved cottages and ranch houses as well as some very impressive architecture.
Families will be happy to know that there is a handful of great educational programs in the neighborhood, including Parkside Elementary School, King Middle School, and Maynard Jackson High School. A preschool is located nearby in the Ormewood Park Presbyterian Church.
To protect the charm and appeal of the area, the community also boasts a neighborhood organization known as the South Atlantans for Neighborhood Development, which gathers and works to maintain the cultural integrity and historic treasures of the south-side neighborhoods.
Residents looking to enjoy the outdoors can spend an afternoon in the surrounding neighborhood parks or take a day to visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Families can also enjoy visiting the animals at the Atlanta Zoo or exploring the Centennial Olympic Park, a 21-acre park that hosted the 1996 Olympic Games.
To please your palate, visit the Elder Tree Public House for European beers and Irish plates or spend an evening at the nearby Vickery’s Bar & Grill in Glenwood Park for a classic grill and Southern fare.
