"Close to a shopping mall, but not much else going on"

Tampa Park is a tiny community that stretches from Stone road to Fairburn road in South West Atlanta. This is a predominately African American community that sits in the Middle of Ben Hill and is accessible from interstate 285. The area is basically an abandoned Sub division development project that turned south when the real estate industry tanked.

The area shares the same amenities as Ben Hill and it is located near Greenbriar mall and shopping center. This area has experienced a sharp decline since the early 90s. Most residents have moved either to other areas in Atlanta, or further south, closer to the Camp Creek shopping district.

Residents have a choice of at least two High Schools in the community. Therrell High, an Atlanta public school has expanded its facilities to focus on STEMS, or science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Therrell also has designed its curriculum to focus on Law and Health sciences.

Tampa park is a place that I rarely visit. I’m not sure if the residents in this area actually consider it a true neighborhood. It’s abandoned/stalled developments are a real eye soar that seems to plague a significant amount of Southwest Atlanta. This is not a place I would call home.
  • close to several shopping centers
  • not much to do
  • some areas are not well- kept
