The Westview neighborhood is excited to be celebrating its centennial!

100 years ago William J. Davis purchased the Westwood Park property from the Ontario Land Company for $100,000. He renamed the property “West End Park”, and hired Solon Zachery Ruff, the civil engineer and landscape expert responsible for Ansley Park, to lay out the plans for his new residence park neighborhood. The lots were auctioned off, and neighbors built beautiful Craftsman bungalows along the wide streets.

Today Westview is a vibrant (and still affordable) in-town neighborhood only five minutes from downtown and seven minutes from Midtown! Come spend a day with us and get to know one of Atlanta’s last hidden gems.

The Atlanta BeltLine is sponsoring a free 5K run/walk in conjunction with the grand opening of phase two of the Westview/West End Trail. Immediately following the 5k will be a neighborhood celebration, featuring a grill-off, music, games, and an artist market!

Things to Bring:
Picnic blankets, camping chairs, an appetite, $5 for the grill-off, sunscreen, cold water, smiles.

Ontario Park Cookout

Ontario Park Cookout Photos

Westview neighbors got together to hold the second annual Ontario Park Cookout this past Saturday. Burgers, hot dogs and chickens were cooking on the grill, drinks in ice tubs provided refreshment, old Oaks trees provided shade during the swelling summer heat, and our beautiful neighborhood provided the backdrop. The Westview Community Organization made up the backbone of the event with support from police to close off the roads, the fire stations for providing seating, local politicians, candidates, and neighbors donations to provide the food and drink. The cookout provided a great opportunity for residents to meet other neighbors, or to mingle with existing friends. Children were enjoying chalk drawing on the street, water balloons games, and jump rope. There was even a glimpse of the occasional hard working new homeowner breaking away from renovation work to enjoy the community gathering.
