About Chosewood Park
Chosewood Park is a neighborhood in southeast Atlanta, Georgia. It is part of Neighborhood Planning Unit Y (NPU-Y), and falls within District 1. The neighborhood is situated along a large portion of the BeltLine providing access for bicycles and pedestrians at multiple locations.
Portions of the neighborhood provide an unobstructed view of the downtown skyline that you wont get from anywhere else.
Within Chosewood Park are two major parks; Chosewood Park and Boulevard Crossing Park. The 15 acre park located in the center of the neighborhood, Chosewood Park, offers basketball courts, a tennis court, a baseball field, a children's playground, and a nature trail through its urban forest. It was designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. Additional park amenities, such as soccer fields, can be found at the Boulevard Crossing Park.
Originally composed of craftsman-style bungalows primarily built in the early 1900s, Chosewood Park is a growing neighborhood.
Chosewood Park was the pilot site for Edible Neighborhoods. In February 2013, two dozen fruit and nut trees were planted along the sidewalks, followed by hundreds of edible flowers. Shortly after, dozens of herbs were planted such as rosemary, oregano, and thyme. All was available for anyone to take a snip for cooking. You can also find blueberries, raspberries, grapes, and figs along the sidewalks.
Edible Neighborhoods is a program designed to encourage community building, local food, and promote “permanent” planting. More information can be found on Edible Neighborhood's website.
