Eastlake was a popular vacation haven for Atlanta’s well-to-do families in the early 1900s and continued to attract golfing enthusiasts who wanted to play at East Lake Golf Club, where golfing legend Bobby Jones played his first and last rounds of golf. By the 1960s, the golf course and the community began to fall into disrepair. In 1995 the East Lake Foundation turned one of the nation’s most violent public housing projects into a national model for community redevelopment.
Today the community continues to thrive as a community of families, professionals and local businesses invested in the idea of a caring and diverse intown community. East Lake is one of Atlanta’s popular neighborhoods with historic bungalows and cottages nestled conveniently to local eateries, shops and transit.
The East Lake community is easily accessed by I-20 and is located near several major east-west throughways, including Glenwood Avenue, Memorial Drive and Hosea Williams Drive. The East Lake Marta Station is located on the East-West Rail Line, and there are plenty of bus routes along the major roads.
