The Morris Brandon Neighborhoods
Springlake | Wildwood | Memorial Park | Castlewood
Several Buckhead neighborhoods that feed into Morris Brandon Elementary School are clustered together between Northside Drive on the east and I-75 on the west. Included are Springlake, Wildwood, Memorial Park and Castlewood. Families flock to these neighborhoods because of their tight knit communities, convenient shops and restaurants, and close proximity to I-75.
Springlake was the first of these neighborhoods to be developed in the 1920’s. Springlake is located between Northside Drive and Howell Mill Road, running from Collier Road on the south to Longwood Road. Springlake is home to Ellsworth Park, a fun gathering place for young families.
Wildwood is located on the west side of Howell Mill Road and some homes boarder I-75. Most of the homes in Wildwood were built in the 1940’s and 50’s. Many of these homes have completely renovated or torn down and rebuilt. Wildwood is home to Beaverbrook Park which is a 7 acre park including a ball field, playground and creek.
Memorial Park neighborhood surrounds the 199 acre Memorial Park located between Northside Drive and Howell Mill Road. Walkers, joggers and families frequent Memorial Park to enjoy the playground as well as the paths both around the park and through the park. While you can find homes that were built in the 1920’s, the majority of homes in Memorial Park were constructed in the 1950’s.
Castlewood is the northern most of these neighborhoods located just north of Morris Brandon Elementary School. Castlewood is comprised of long winding roads rolling through the hilly topography. Most of the homes in Castlewood were constructed in the late 1940’s and 50’s. Today many of these homes have been renovated or rebuilt and can sell for well over $1 million.
