Inman Park was established in 1889 as a "streetcar suburb" of downtown Atlanta and is just under two miles east of Five Points downtown. It was originally a neighborhood for the very wealthy but began to incorporate working-‐class housing during the 1930s. Parts of the neighborhood were slated for destruction during the 1960s as part of a massive highway project but survived and enjoyed a renaissance from the 1970s to the 1990s as "urban pioneers" moved in to renovate the homes.
There are now approximately 2,450 households and they include townhomes, condo/lofts, apartments and single-family homes; everything from 850-square-foot shotgun homes to 16,800‐square‐foot Victorian mansions. Prices range from $200,000 to more than $1 million. The neighborhood population is just under 4,000 people.
Inman Park is a walkable neighborhood and many residents know each other; several have lived there for decades. Neighborhood amenities include the Inman Park pool (membership required) and the Trolley Barn, which is a renovated 1880 trolley car depot with a patio and a flower garden in the rear. It is now used as an event space and is great for weddings and neighborhood events.
The Beltline runs along the western edge of Inman Park. It offers residents bike and pedestrian access to Virginia Highland and Midtown. Also, a portion of Freedom Park extends into Inman Park and offers a large lawn for Frisbee playing and a bike/walking path that connects Inman Park to Candler Park.
Springvale Park is a 4.6‐acre city park located in the center of the neighborhood. It was designed as part of the neighborhood back in 1889. Today it features many old-growth trees, a natural spring and a pond with lots of wildlife like ducks, fish, turtles, a blue heron and the neighborhood's unofficial geese-mascots, Lucy and Ricky. Children enjoy fishing in the pond.
In February 2013, a brand‐new playground is scheduled to open in the park. It will feature a 3‐story tree house‐themed structure with slides, swings and climbing structures.
Inman Park is served by Mary Lin Elementary, Inman Middle School and Grady High School. The Atlanta School (K-8) is a private school that also serves the neighborhood. Area hospitals include Emory Midtown and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta ‐ Hugh Spalding.
