Druid Hills was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in New York and is considered the father of landscape architecture in the United States. Druid Hills dates back to the late 1800s and the large, private, wooded lots; historic architecture; abundant parks; and the convenient, in-town location are what continue to attract buyers today.
The Druid Hills Golf Club and Olmsted’s Linear Park along Ponce de Leon Avenue contribute to the neighborhood’s verdant, peaceful nature. Most of the neighborhood is within walking distance of Emory Village with Everybody’s Pizza, which is an Atlanta landmark. Emory Village also includes Doc Chey’s Noodle House, Barnes & Noble, Starbucks, Chipotle, Yogli Mogli, Romeo’s New York Pizza, Panera Bread, Rise-N-Dine and numerous other eateries, which are centered around an inviting park.
