"Needs a little TLC"

Located in Metro Atlanta’s south east region, Benteen Park has been a community in transition for the last 10 - 15 years. Benteen Park is a community member of S.A.N.D. or South Atlantans for Neighborhood Development which is an organization that seeks to raise awareness and capital to transform impoverished communities on the south side of the city. Since taking on several redevelopment projects, Benteen has seen significant property value improvements and neighborhood cohesion. Although the city over the past 5 years has significantly reduced the appearance of poverty (shutting down public housing), Boulevard remains an old relic of the past with its crime.

This is, in my opinion the achilles heel of Benteen Park and other south east atlanta neighborhoods. With crime on the rise again, many residents simply don’t have much faith in the police providing protection in this city. Besides the bad, Benteen Park is prime location for those that enjoy in town living. A few blocks north of the neighborhood, is Grant Park. Grant Park is a neat location because it contains a lot of history dating back to the Civil War and it also houses Zoo Atlanta. It’s the perfect place for a inexpensive date.
  • great prices for homebuyers
