Chastain Park

At a Glance

Chastain Park is a large community in Buckhead and Sandy Springs Georgia. The community’s namesake is Atlanta’s second largest park. The 268 acre park begins at Sandy Springs’ southern city limit, but the community extends well into Sandy Springs.

Chastain Park is the hub of activity and the main draw for families to this area. The park contains a network of walking trails, several playgrounds, and a community swimming pool. Local sports teams and organizations compete on the park’s tennis courts, baseball diamonds, and soccer fields. The park is also home to the North Fulton Golf Course and the Chastain Horse Park.

The Cadence Bank Amphitheater at Chastain Park has been hosting outdoor concerts since 1944, and the Chastain Park Arts Center hosts numerous classes, exhibits, and events. The Chastain Restaurant is a favorite eatery for residents and visitors alike.

The Chastain Park Civic association provides opportunities for residents to stay informed and participate in community affairs. This active organization monitors city planning and zoning in the area, helps to facilitate neighborhood security patrols, and sponsors community festivals and events.


The Chastain Park community encompasses the neighborhoods around Chastain Park between Highpoint and Mt Paran-Northside in southern Sandy Springs. Subdivisions in the area include Cherokee Park, Long Island Hills, Merlandale/Pine Lake/Forest Lake.

What we Love

The activities in Chastain Park are hard to beat. The park offers sports and recreation opportunities for the whole family, and the vibrant community benefits from the interaction among residents.

What We Don't

Events at the park bring lots of visitors, which can create traffic snarls. Plan for traffic on concert nights at the amphitheater, and busy team sports days on the weekends.
