"Gorgeous shortcut from Virginia-Highland to the highway"

Nobody lives on Freedom Parkway. Not by choice, anyway. That's surprising, because it's a gorgeous road with very few intersections and lots of parkland popular with joggers and cyclists. On the other hand, there are no driveways on Freedom Parkway, so there are no homes there either. Yes, a few people sleep in the park, and it's a great way to walk from the Open Door Mission to Samaritan House with a minimum of honking drivers, but it's also a great place to get a bit of sunshine and fresh air.

Freedom Parkway is essentially a shortcut from Ponce de Leon to Interstate 75 and Interstate 85 (they're one and the same in this part of Atlanta) without all the traffic lights of Midtown and downtown Atlanta. If you're in a car, it's not a destination, it's just a way of getting there. It does take you to the Carter Center, though, which continues the missions Jimmy Carter established as president. And if you pay close attention, just as you're about to drive under an overpass, you'll see some "paintings" in the style of the ancient cave paintings of Lascaux, France. Clever!
