Candler Park, located east of downtown Atlanta, is a vibrant, historic neighborhood that effortlessly combines the allure of the past with the vitality of the present. Renowned for its charming early 20th-century bungalows, scenic park, and lively local businesses, Candler Park encapsulates the quintessential Atlanta neighborhood experience.

Named after Asa Griggs Candler, a former mayor of Atlanta and founder of The Coca-Cola Company, Candler Park was established in the late 19th century. The area’s history is reflected in its architecture, with many of its homes designed in the Craftsman and Victorian styles. These charming bungalows and houses, painted in warm, inviting colors, line the neighborhood’s tree-shaded streets, contributing to Candler Park’s characteristically quaint and welcoming atmosphere.

At the heart of the neighborhood is the 55-acre park from which the area gets its name. Candler Park, with its rolling green spaces, swimming pool, golf course, and playground, serves as a communal backyard for the neighborhood. The park is the locale for numerous community gatherings, from concerts and festivals to sports leagues and farmers markets, fostering a sense of camaraderie among residents.

Despite its residential tranquility, Candler Park is a neighborhood pulsating with life. It’s home to an assortment of local businesses, ranging from quirky boutiques and art galleries to popular eateries and coffee shops. The neighborhood’s primary commercial district, located along McLendon Avenue, is a hive of activity where residents can shop, dine, and socialize.

Candler Park’s cultural scene is as dynamic as its community life. The neighborhood hosts the annual Candler Park Music and Food Festival, a highly anticipated event that features live music, gourmet food trucks, and artisan market. The festival exemplifies Candler Park’s creative spirit and communal vibrancy.

The neighborhood also values education, with the highly rated Mary Lin Elementary School at its core. The school is integral to the neighborhood’s strong sense of community, reinforcing Candler Park’s reputation as a family-friendly area.

Another unique attribute of Candler Park is its commitment to sustainability. The neighborhood has its own community garden, where residents can grow their own produce, contributing to both community bonding and environmental stewardiness.

Candler Park is well-connected to the rest of Atlanta, with the MARTA rail line providing easy access to the city’s commercial and cultural hubs. Yet, despite its urban accessibility, Candler Park retains a distinctly small-town feel. This balance between urban convenience and community-centric living is a defining feature of the neighborhood.
