Point of Interest
“Great open park with casual walking trails and a hard core track and outdoor interval station. There is a large field to throw a frisbee, or lots of places to have a picnic. Beautiful views of downtown as well. You can rent bikes or eat at one of the restaurants, or just walk around playing Pokemon Go.”

Neighborhood
“East Atlanta Village is a walkable area of town with unique, edgy character and a thriving independent business sector. Located south of Little Five Points and conveniently accessible to I-20, East Atlanta Village is a neighborhood that has found a quirky, hip and unpretentious balance of urban living. A few words could sum up East Atlanta Village (EAV) well: locally-owned shops, farmers market, music, and bars! Along Flat Shoals and Glenwood avenues, you’ll find a melting pot of restaurants, pubs, bookshops, artisan cupcake bakeries, LGBTQ-friendly bars, bike shops, clothing stores and more. If you’re looking for information about Atlanta’s music scene, East Atlanta Village is a great place to put your ear to the ground. Pubs like The Earl and The Basement at the Graveyard attract performances from local, regional, and national bands, and no matter what style of music you’re looking for, someone around the village can recommend good spots to find it. Community is important to East Atlanta, which is why the neighborhood invests in features like the EAV Farmers Market (every Thursday, April through December) and the music and arts festival called the East Atlanta Strut. It brings people together and creates ties to the neighborhood.”

Breakfast Spot

“Brunch’s only flaw is that it’s usually relegated exclusively to weekends, and Kirkwood’s Le Petite Marché solves this quandary by making brunch an all-day, everyday affair. Sandwiches are the name of the game here: some, like The Sarah, modeled into paninis, others like the Egg Sandwich cradling delicate scrambles, and still others like the Caribbean Chicken slathering spicy jerk aioli onto unassuming chicken breast and other sliced meats. Sweets include a French Toast Sandwich, whose bready bits are battered in vanilla rum before serving as a cocoon for maple syrup-drizzled eggs and bacon.”
