Here we enjoy the convenience that comes from being near the heart of one of the world’s great cities, while still enjoying the measure of seclusion we get from our townhomes being sited so advantageously. Brookhaven’s heritage as the summer cottage locale for Atlanta comes in even handier today. That balance of distance and access makes life more enjoyable anytime, yet we’re especially grateful for it during these unexpected times.
Our Green Advantages
Fitness routines are hard for some to maintain while still observing responsible health safety measures. Gyms and classes are on hiatus. Outdoor recreation is one answer, but many are not in a position to take advantage of it as easily as the fortunate residents of Brookhaven. This makes our access to the Atlanta Beltline especially opportune. The Peachtree Creek Greenway is our own three-mile section of a 12-mile multi-use trail that follows the north fork of Peachtree Creek and links to the Beltline.
Though in-person programming on the Beltline is suspended for the duration of health concerns, the opportunity to get out and about while still observing social distancing is there in abundance. Ultimately, our connection to the Beltline – the Peachtree Creek Greenway – will not only be recreational, but for many a close-to-work way for bicycle and pedestrian access. Following plans now in progress, it will join Atlanta’s PATH system and connect Brookhaven with Atlanta, Chamblee, and Doraville.
The Parks We Call our Own
The priority Atlanta places on green space and outdoor recreation goes double for Brookhaven. Maybe triple. The 135-acre Murphey Candler Park is filled with facilities and opportunities for the whole family. Last fall, a major enhancement of the facilities at Briarwood Park was approved, including a new swimming pool that can be transformed into a 75-foot, 16-lane competition section for use by swim teams that operate from the park. Ashford Park, cozier and more personal, offers children a playground that includes slides and climbing areas. Programs such as youth baseball, softball, and football leagues enliven Brookhaven’s parks and further forge the sense of community here.
We’re grateful for the efforts of the Historic Brookhaven Neighborhood Association, which plays an active part in the ongoing preservation and beautification of the treasured public spaces. To protect ourselves and others, and to lessen the danger to those who are working to serve the community, it is fortunate to be near the resources that can make our daily living possible even within these responsible restrictions.
It is clear that the townhomes in Brookhaven draw their value not only from what they offer, but also from where they are situated. For more information on how to own at Skyland Brookhaven, visit https://skylandbrookhaven.com/contact/ or contact us at 678.515.3927.
