The Candler Park neighborhood is situated on 55 acres of greenspace that Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler donated as a city park to Atlanta in 1922, a wooded area bordered by Ponce De Leon Avenue and McLendon. Tucked in and around grassy, rolling hills, the park features a nine-hole golf course a swimming pool, a football/soccer field, a basketball court, tennis courts, and a playground. At the headwaters of local Peavine Creek, beavers can be seen around dawn and dusk, as well as bats, birds, snakes, turtles, and frogs that call Candler Park home. Though predominately peaceful, with its renovated older homes and bucolic setting, the neighborhood is also known for its ?main street,? a family-friendly area of McLendon near Clifton, where the original Flying Biscuit Cafe, the Candler Park Market, Dr. Bombay?s Underwater Tea Party, Fellini?s Pizza, LaFonda Latina and other bistros are gathered.
