Established in 1892, Ormewood Park is a neighborhood located on the Eastside of Atlanta, east of Grant Park and south of Reynoldstown. Ormewood Park is one of the most historically intact neighborhoods in Atlanta. Many of the historic homes and structures have remained through neighborhood changes. OP has a low-key quiet atmosphere and feels like a suburban neighborhood in the city. It is a short distance Zoo Atlanta, Glenwood Park, and East Atlanta Village.
The area was the territory of the Creek Indian Nation until 1825. After a treaty was signed, the land became up for a lottery. During the Civil War, much of the land was a Confederate Soldiers Home and by the late 1800s, a trolley line extension was constructed. The icon trolley symbol can be found throughout Ormewood Park today.
The streets of Ormewood Park are marked by wood sided cottages, shotgun houses, craftsman bungalows, and Victorian homes constructed after the first World War. Over the past few decades, the neighborhood has welcomed ranch-style and contemporary homes.
The extension of the Atlanta Beltline, a paved multi-use path, is expected to trail through the neighborhood soon. Ormewood Park is a dog friendly community, has lots of sidewalks, plenty of restaurants and coffee shops.
Warm, low-key, and innovative, these are the elements of Ormewood Park.
Hodgepodge Coffeehouse is located in the heart of Ormewood offers baked goods from scratch, coffee, and open mic nights. Other notable eateries include Spoon Eastside, Little Azio, and Enduldge cupcakes.
In 2016, the Ormewood Park Civic Association was created and soon after the Ormewood Park Makers Festival was established. This festival brings thousands of people to celebrate local craftsmen, live music, workshops and includes a historic trolley tour of the neighborhood.
