Candler Park

Candler Park

Candler Park was named for Asa Griggs Candler, one-time mayor of Atlanta and full-time Coca-Cola tycoon. The Candlers left an indelible mark on Atlanta, especially the parts starting at Candler Park and extending north to fancier Druid Hills and the Emory University area. The park itself has a very affordable and not-too-shabby 9-hole golf course, plus a pool, and a few fields that host a number of festivals each year. Candler Park’s little strip of retail includes one of the best neighborhood markets we know about.
