The City of Chamblee offers residents and visitors alike a variety of parks to enjoy. We will do a feature post for each of the seven parks located in Chamblee. Our first installment is Chamblee Parks – Keswick Park.
Chamblee Parks – Keswick Park
Keswick park has been designed and designated the “active park” of Chamblee….meaning it is designed for major activities whereas the other parks are designed to serve as neighborhood parks.
What Does Keswick Park Offer?
And indeed, the park does have a lot to offer! From picnic tables and picnic shelters to tennis and trails, you can find it all at Keswick Park! The largest of the City of Chamblee parks at 45 acres, there are many active recreation facilities including walking trails, dog park, full size adult softball field, tee-ball field, soccer field, multi-purpose field, two tennis courts and an outdoor basketball court.
There is a walking trail from Keswick Park that connects to the Mid-City District. It starts near the softball field, and leads under Peachtree Blvd and Clairmont Road and comes out on Chamblee-Tucker Road near the entrance to the Walmart shopping center. (NOTE: with the construction of Parkview on Peachtree – a mixed-used residential/retail development, the trail is temporarily closed during this construction process. A cool bridge is being built over the trail that will connect the development, and access to the retail area of Parkview on Peachtree will be available from the trail! April, 2016)
What Special Features are Available at Keswick Park?
Another great feature of Keswick Park is a 3,500 square foot community building that is available to individuals and groups to rent. You can find rental information for the Keswick Park Community Building HERE. The building will accommodate a group of 130 people.
Where IS Keswick Park?
The park is located off of Johnson Ferry Road. If traveling South on Peachtree Blvd, turn right on Johnson Ferry Road. Then turn right on Keswick Drive. This will take you through the Keswick Village neighborhood (older homes) as well as the new Keswick Village homes being built right by the park! There is a parking lot at the Community Center and just past the Community Center you can take a left towards the soccer fields and playground for additional parking.
We will post links to our other Chamblee Park posts at the bottom of each post. And there will be a main Chamblee Parks Page as well, located under the Chamblee tab above, Under Intown Atlanta.
