Nearby are many parks to enjoy like Sweetwater Creek State Park, John A. White Park, Adams Park, Grant Park, and Greenbriar Tampa Park.

"Affordable living and ...."

Arlington Estates is a small subdivision community located along Campbellton Rd on the south side of Atlanta. The neighborhood borders Ben Hill, Greenbriar and Camp Creek Communities. Like many of its neighboring communities, Arlington Estates features inexpensive real estate and a lack of amenities for its residents. The Highlight of activities for this area is the Greenbriar shoping mall. This mall is one of the oldest in Atlanta and has had very little renovations since its opening in the late 1960s. In many ways, the community of Arlington Estates is a reflection of this neglect. Many of the homes have lost their value and have since become rental properties. There are not many young professionals and young homeowners in this area because of the lack of employment options.

The only positive perk that I can describe for this area is its proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson International airport. Arlington Estates is located about 2 miles away from one of the busiest airports in the country. Outside of this fact, I cannot find any other reason why anyone would want to settle in this area. It stands as a relic to the days when Atlanta over developed residential areas and neglected building the type of of infrastructure required to sustain them.

Cons
  • not much to do

"Off the Beaten Path"

Arlington Estates is a great neighborhood on the southside of Atlanta that is off the beaten path but a nice neighborhood none the less. The subdivision is relatively new, 5 years or less, for the most part. The homes are nicely maintained and you can tell the neighbors take pride in where they live. Just as the homes are relatively new, so are the schools in the area.

The only real pests are those that come from the woods around the neighborhood including plenty of deer, opossums, foxes and the occasional coyote. Because Arlington Estates is off the beaten path, traffic is not as bad as in most places.

Residents of Arlington Estates have the benefit of childcare within most of the subdivisions as well as some recreational offerings. If there are to be negatives or cons associated with the neighborhood is that it is a little far from major interstates and major retail shopping.
Pros
  • relatively new neighborhood
  • great neighborhood spirit
  • childcare within the community
Cons
  • not close to nightlife
  • not close to major interstates or retail shopping
