Grant Park

The historic Grant Park neighborhood is an intown community inside I-20 and east of
downtown Atlanta. Known for its beautiful homes, in addition to its 131-acre eponymous park, Grant Park was established in 1882. The Grant Park Zoo, now known as Zoo Atlanta, was created seven years later, and a neighborhood of large Victorian mansions, Queen Anne-style houses, cottages and bungalows sprang up. Over the years, the park and neighborhood suffered a period of neglect before revitalization efforts created the
Grant Park of today. Grant Park is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and a new generation of homeowners are flocking to the neighborhood. In addition to the area around the park, the neighborhood also comprises part of Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery. For residents, Oakland is both a community park and an historic garden cemetery, whose permanent inhabitants are a who’s who list of Georgia governors, city leaders, prominent businessmen, “Gone with the Wind” author Margaret Mitchell, pro golf legend Bobby Jones and countless Civil War soldiers and Atlanta residents of every station in life.
