A Premier Intown Atlanta Neighborhood
Intown Atlanta Neighborhood
Ardmore Park neighborhood is in the heart of Buckhead within walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops and Piedmont Hospital.
The neighborhood is a community of residents who connect regularly and are linked through the Ardmore Park Neighborhood Association (APNA). APNA strives to maintain and improve the livability of the neighborhood.
Situated on the Atlanta Beltline, Ardmore Park provides easy access to multiple playgrounds, the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, Bobby Jones Golf Course, and miles of paved trails. In coming years, the trail will connect to neighborhood to the East and Westside Beltline.
The land comprising the Ardmore Park neighborhood was originally owned by the Collier family, one of Atlanta’s early pioneering families who arrived in Atlanta in 1823. Specifically, Andrew Jackson Collier—for whom Anjaco Road is named (the first two letters of his first, middle, and last names)—owned 202.5 acres of land off Peachtree that his heirs subdivided in the 1920s, leading to the development of the Ardmore Park neighborhood.
Collier operated an antebellum grist mill off Tanyard Creek in the area of the current Ardmore and Tanyard Creek Parks. The area is also known for being the site of some of the most hostile and bloody combat during the Civil War, as Confederate forces desperately attacked the armies commanded by Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman that were closing in on Atlanta in July 1864. Historical markers dot both Ardmore Park and Tanyard Creek Park, recounting this history.
The development of the neighborhood started in the early 1920s. At the time of initial development, the neighborhood consisted of 28th Street to just past Wycliff Road, Wycliff Anjaco Road, and Collier Road. The development of Anjaco began soon after in the 1930s, and the western half of 28th Street and Ardmore Road was developed next, largely in the 40s and 50s, coinciding with the development of the park for which the neighborhood is now named.
