"Way too much going on here"

Baker’s Ferry is the stretch of land along Baker’s Ferry road from Fulton Industrial boulevard to Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. The Baker’s Ferry Area borders Wisteria Gardens and Adamsville to the North and Boulder Park to the south. This neighborhood has two public parks; Herbert Greene and Utoy Boulder Park. Many Atlanta natives are born at the troubled Southwest Atlanta Hospital located near Baker’s Ferry. The hospital is most known to have closed twice in a span of three years!

Baker’s Ferry, like much of its Fulton Industrial neighbors is filled with many industrial parks and truck stops. I cannot count the number of sleazy motels and sex shops along Fulton Industrial catering to the horny trucker market! Is it me or it it pretty ironic that Atlanta’s main amusement park, Six Flags is also located in this area. On any evening after 6pm you can find an array of hookers looking to pick up truckers along this strip. It is safe to say that you should reconsider settling in a community like this. Outside of the criminal element, many others have taken a clue and have abandoned this area as well to settle in cities inside of Cobb county.
  • not too far from Six Flags
  • surrounding stores don't compliment the area
