18 Jan Neighborhood Guide: Candler Park
At Intown Area Homes, we believe home is more than the roof over your head – it’s your community.
Our neighborhood guides help prospective renters and homeowners determine where they want to settle into a community, as well as provide current residents with resources to have the most fulfilling experiences in their neighborhoods.
Like many neighborhoods in intown Atlanta, Candler Park has a full and interesting past. With its proximity to Ponce de Leon Ave., a main artery of the city, and one of the city’s largest parks, this neighborhood is a thriving staple amongst intown neighborhoods.
