Candler Park is not just a park, it is also a vibrant, historic neighborhood!
The community was built mostly in the 1920’s to the 1930’s and has a decidedly historic feel. There are street lights and sidewalks and a lot of arts and craft’s style homes. It borders a great City Park which is also called Candler Park. This park has a 9 hole golf course, tennis soccer, a neighborhood run pool and lots more! There is also a great kidscape, basketball, a gazebo and neighborhood festival every year. There is a bike path which winds from downtown to Stone Mountain which goes across the bottom of Candler Park.
The neighborhood is a mixture of older bungalows and new homes. The original 1920-1940 bungalows range from around $300 for a fixer upper (occasionally a little less) to 450-550 for large renovated homes.

The history of the bike path is interesting. We bought our home in Candler park bordering the land which would eventually become the Freedom Park in 1991. At the time it was overgrown with kudzu and weeds which hid large homeless camps. The land had originally been filled with houses and had been condemed and cleared to make an expressway leading to Stone Mt. It was embroiled in controversy from the beginning and was almost defeated in the eighties.
There was a resurgence of interest when the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library was built in Inman Park. The arguement at the time was that there would be so much traffic from visitors to the Library that the expressway would be needed again (LOL). Fortunately for everyone it was defeated by the neighborhood again and in the years before the Olympics (96) the Freedom park and bike path was built. Our view has changed considerably (as well as our property value). Now it is a well used park with permanent art installations and a truly wonderful bike path that is used by thousands of people a day.
When they finally gave up on the plans for the highway, some of the lots which were not needed for the bike path were sold to developers and large new homes were built with views of the park. The price range of the new homes was between 700K and 900K.
