"A positive plus a negative equals..."

Chosewood Park is located on Atlanta’s southeast side. It shares its name with a park that is in the area. This neighborhood is basically a little south of the Peoplestown community. Similar to Peoplestown, Chosewood Park is yet another Atlanta neighborhood that is undergoing several redevelopment initiatives. This is a mixed neighborhood that consists of a conglomerate of renovated houses, abandoned homes (and businesses) and vacant lots. This area attracts developers, first-time homebuyers and panhandlers alike.

I honestly have mixed feelings about this neighborhood. On one end, I’d really like to say that this neighborhood is great for first-time homebuyers, but on the other hand… I’m not so sure. There are a few reasons for this. On the plus side, this area has a nice assortment of colonial homes and bungalows, but there are also some sketchy-looking shabby public housing structures as well. Cost of living is weird too. Some houses are extremely affordable (which I think is appropriate given the condition of this area); while others are grossly over-priced.

Perhaps one of the reasons for overpricing is the fact that this neighborhood is located about 1 mile from the beautiful Grant Park and Zoo Atlanta. This park is one of the city’s most beautiful hidden attractions. It’s the perfect place to take a summer jog because it has plenty of massive trees that provide shade from the blaring sun. Ironically, Chosewood Park is also less than a mile away from the US Prison Bureau... See what I mean.... a positive plus a negative equals...

Outside of taking a visit to the park, there is not much else to do in this area. I mean, there are some new developments not too far away, but this area still needs a lot of work. Hopefully, someday the over-priced homes here will live up to their prices.
  • close to some really nice green spaces
