The neighborhood was primarily developed in the 1950s.

More recent additions have included Multi-Story Clusters, Townhouses, Condominiums and Apartment Communities.
Not far from our doorstep is Medlock Park, with a swimming pool and baseball fields. Mason Mill Park, to our North, features hiking trails and a tennis center. The South Peachtree Creek Nature Preserve to our East also features hiking trails and sponsors community events. Our established neighborhood is an ideal example of the "Atlanta Urban Forest" with a lush tree canopy of majestic native hardwoods, evergreens and other varieties.
