First developed in 1904, Ansley Park was the dream of Edwin P. Ansley who along with several prominent businessmen of the time, purchased a large plot of land north of the city from longtime owner George Washington Collier. Ansley envisioned a new motorcar-oriented suburb of wide winding streets and green parks.
Ansley's vision of a gracious, harmonious neighborhood that would be an oasis in the midst of the bustling city of Atlanta lives on today, in great part thanks to the efforts of the Ansley Park Civic Association (APCA) . Since the 1960's, the Association has been an active force in maintaining the neighborhood's integrity, safety, and sense of community.

The next step in the public engagement process is to obtain feedback from the public on the Draft Subarea 6 Master Plan. The plan will be open for public comment through the end of June 2023

THANK YOU! WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL!
Show your pride in Ansley Park by sponsoring our new street sign toppers. These small signs sit on top of the city street signs to define the neighborhood’s boundaries and celebrate its history. All contributors will be recognized in Ansleyphile and invited to an unveiling event in McClatchey Park.
Forty intersections require street sign toppers, and we’ll raise funds up front for an additional 35 to replace any that become damaged or go missing and for other program expenses.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or suggestions.
