"Wonderful Neighborhood"

Ormewood Park is actually a neighborhood that is located in the eastern part of Atlanta. This neighborhood has definitely been through some changes, and is constantly growing with much diversity.

Ormewood Park is actually home to a middle school that goes by the name of Neighborhood Charter School. This school takes care of the Grant Park area as well as Ormewood Park. The exact location of Ormewood Park is east of Grant Park and west of East Atlanta. It is also north of Confederate Street.

There are a few attractions such as museums in the Ormewood Park area. If you really want to do a lot of shopping and attraction visiting, then you should definitely plan on visiting the Grant Park area which is not too far from it. You will be able to take advantage of everything that this wonderful neighborhood has to offer. Since Grant Park is actually the fourth largest city in the area, you will be more than likely to do a lot of your shopping within that radius.

Ormewood Park is a nice place to live especially since they are remodeling the area, and building new homes, and town homes.

"Mmm, mmm good intown living south of 20"

Ormewood Park is one of several formerly suburban boroughs east of Old Atlanta that has clearly mastered the recipe for an ideal intown neighborhood – and man, are they cookin’! Generous helpings of historic craftsman bungalows, brick ranches, cottages and a sprinkling of original Victorians attract DIY renovators and other industrious inhabitants who build community as solidly as they build window benches and breakfast nooks. Well-conceived restaurants and retail establishments put a heavy focus on local roots, drawing their inspiration from the diverse character of residents (all races, ages, orientations and backgrounds seem stirred happily together here).

Glenwood Park, one of the best realizations of a modern smart-growth community I’ve ever seen, has no equal when it comes to new, green-centered construction in a planned-community frame. They even have their very own beer fest each year (pretty much a requirement for any true intown neighborhood).

Schools here are surprisingly good for being South of I-20, likely thanks in part to Ormewood’s proximity to Grant Park – a giant among Atlanta neighborhoods, and a distinctly family-centric one at that. Instant access to main thoroughfares like Moreland Ave, Boulevard and Memorial make getting around a relative snap – even taking Atlanta’s infamous traffic into account.

All in all, Ormewood Park is a prime example of what we intowners crave; a trademark Atlanta neighborhood – hip, historic, diverse; a delicious address any way you slice it. Cheers!
