Named for Coca-Cola magnate Asa Candler, who donated the parkland to Atlanta in 1922, this neighborhood is centered on a 55-acre park and nine-hole golf course. Long a hippie enclave, Candler Park is also a family-oriented community due to Mary Lin Elementary School’s outstanding reputation. Also nestled in this neighborhood is the Lake Claire Community Land Trust, a green sanctuary that is open to the public complete with trails, gardens, and weekly drum circles. With its small strip of boutiques and casual eateries, Candler Park remains one of Atlanta’s more laid-back and quirky neighborhoods.
