Grant Park

Grant Park is the only neighborhood in Atlanta where you will find twin Giant Panda cubs. Aside from housing Zoo Atlanta, Grant Park is known as being a hip hangout for foodies and history buffs. The neighborhood is home to Oakland Cemetery, the final resting place of Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones and many former Atlanta mayors.

Grant Park is one of those neighborhoods that just feels like home. Located close to Downtown Atlanta, just south of Oakland Cemetery and east of Turner Field, Grant Park is characterized by Victorian-style architecture, little villages of local shops and restaurants, and the fourth-largest park in the city. And did we mention it’s also home to Zoo Atlanta?

Visitors are welcome to engage with the neighborhood by relaxing in the park, bringing families to Zoo Atlanta (home of America’s only twin Giant Panda cubs) and on the northern most tip of Grant Park, by exploring the 48 acres of historic Oakland Cemetery. Along Boulevard, Memorial and Cherokee avenues, you’ll discover many ways to experience the neighborhood’s local character and dining scene.

Trees are a signature feature of Grant Park, and whether you’re enjoying a cup of joe on a coffee shop’s patio or taking a bike ride down the street, a canopy of trees keeps your experience cool in the summer. Be sure to visit during the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival for even more quirky Atlanta fun.

As you walk, bike or drive through the neighborhood, you’ll notice that many of the homes display Grant Park signs. Residents are very proud to be part of this neighborhood and go out of their way to be friendly to guests.
