Atkins Park

A dignified “mini” neighborhood, Atkins Parks is made up of a whopping three streets: St. Louis Place, St. Augustine Place, and St. Charles Place. A sidewalk called the “By-Way” runs north-south through the three streets and was originally used as a convenient way to access the trolleys at Ponce de Leon in the early 1900s.



The well-established neighborhood with deep historical roots sits just north of Poncey Highland and south of Virginia Highands. The community of Atkins Park is largely involved in the activities and associations of its larger neighbor, Virginia Highlands.  A small but quaint .41 acre park, called New Highland Park, resides in the neighborhood bordering North Highland Ave. Here, you can always find children playing in the field as well as book-worms, sunbathers, and the like. Moreover, shopping, restaurants, and pubs are just a stone’s throw away.

Unique to the neighborhood are the stone gateways located at the street ends of the neighborhood, which not only serve to clearly mark the neighborhood, but also create the impression that you are entering into another world. The vibrant, noisy, and light-filled streets of Virginia Highlands are a stark contrast to its quiet and shaded neighbor, Atkins Park.
