Brookhaven’s Lynwood Park community sits in the northern part of the city between Peachtree-Dunwoody Road and Ashford-Dunwoody Roads. Despite a great deal of new construction in the area, it is one of the Atlanta area’s oldest communities and dates back to the early 20th century. Residents can be in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, and other parts of Brookhaven in just minutes which means ample job opportunities, as well as unlimited entertainment opportunities.
Things to Do
There are numerous ways to enjoy the great outdoors in Lynwood Park. The Peachtree Golf Club borders the neighborhood to the east, while the Capital City Country Club, what many consider to be Atlanta’s finest golf club, is just a few minutes south of the neighborhood. A small park, also called Lynwood Park, sits just inside the neighborhood, and is a hotspot for families with young children. It features a pool, basketball court, playground, rec center, and picnic areas. There are several swim and tennis clubs in the area, including Hampton Hall Swim and Tennis Club which has its own swim team and hosts ALTA tennis tournaments, and The Brittany Club which hosts fun activities for children and adults throughout the year. For excellent shopping and dining, head north to the Perimeter Center area. Here you will find Perimeter Mall, a local favorite, and beloved restaurants like McKendricks and Seasons 52.
The Lynwood Park community is made up of several small neighborhoods, many with their own civic associations and tight-knit feel. The homes in the area range from historic Victorian bungalows to modern styles. In recent years, some of the older homes have been renovated or torn down to make way for new construction. The average home in Lynwood Park sells for about $530,000. Many of the residences sit on private, wooded lots, which is a major draw to the area.
