I am a bit biased when describing Grove Park as I had my eye on this neighborhood since the early development plans for Westside Quarry Park were announced close to a decade ago. I eyed and then I purchased and soon will be calling Grove Park my home. Bordered by Center Hill on the west; Dixie Hills, West Lake and Hunter Hills on the south; and Almond Park, West Highlands to the north, this Northwest Atlanta community is bustling with activity. Originally developed in the 1920s as one of Atlanta’s first street car suburbs, Grove Park has been up and down in terms of development. It boomed up until the 1970-80s then suffered a slow demise as other westside neighborhoods became rampant with crime and property neglect. What makes Grove Park so charming is its linear parks dotting multiple streets and namesake park in the center of the neighborhood. Current projects under construction include a new KIPP charter school and YMCA with community center. With the MLK innovation Corridor Project, creation of the Westside Beltline and new Westside Quarry Park that borders just north of the neighborhood, Grove Park is becoming a popular neighborhood to invest or renovate as a first time homeowner with prices well below average for the area. Today you will find a boom in revitalization as original Tudor and Craftsman / bungalows are being renovated alongside a few mid-century, Victorian and newer construction homes. Annual festivals include the Grove Park Westside Wing Festival.
