Druid Hills Guided Walking Tour

Map to Location

Planned by Frederick Law Olmsted in 1893, the Druid Hills neighborhood offers the gracious ambiance created by America's preeminent landscape designer. View elegant homes of diverse architectural styles created by notable architects such as Neel Reid, W.T. Downing and Philip Shutze in a lush park-like setting of curving streets and mature plantings. The neighborhood is flanked by a recently restored and enhanced linear park system. The result of a preservation effort by several private and public organizations, the parks provide a calming scene for residents and passers-by.

Meet in the parking lot of St. John’s Lutheran Church, 1410 Ponce de Leon Ave. 30307, on the corner of Ponce de Leon Avenue NE and Oakdale Road NE.
