Living in the Grant Park Neighborhood

Grant Park is one of Atlanta’s historic intown neighborhoods near downtown Atlanta and the the King Memorial MARTA station on the blue and green rail line. Victorian homes and bungalows in the area date back to the late 1800s, when the land purchased by Lemuel P. Grant in 1843 was subdivided. The neighborhood also features a large park of the same name that contains Zoo Atlanta.
