Neighborhoods - Sherwood Forest

Why developers in the 1940s decided to name this sleepy residential neighborhood abutting Ansley Golf Course Sherwood Forest is anyone’s guess. But “once you name something Sherwood Forest, you kind of have to follow through,” says Mike Grill, president of the Sherwood Forest Civic Association. And follow through they did. Robin Hood Road is the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare. Friar Tuck Road and Little John Trail overlook the golf course. Well-kept midcentury ranches dot Lady Marian Lane and Nottingham Way. Like so many neighborhoods in Atlanta, Sherwood Forest is excited about a future Beltline connection, since the loop is within walking distance. — Debbie Michaud
