First developed in 1904, Ansley Park was the dream of Edwin P. Ansley who along with several prominent businessmen of the time, purchased a large plot of land north of the city from longtime owner George Washington Collier. Ansley envisioned a new motorcar-oriented suburb of wide winding streets and green parks.
Ansley's vision of a gracious, harmonious neighborhood that would be an oasis in the midst of the bustling city of Atlanta lives on today, in great part thanks to the efforts of the Ansley Park Civic Association (APCA) . Since the 1960's, the Association has been an active force in maintaining the neighborhood's integrity, safety, and sense of community.
Update October 8, 2021
Update on the Save Ansley Park Campaign
As previously announced, consideration of the two ordinances introduced by Councilmember Farohki that would have rezoned 120 of our neighborhood properties to MR/MU multi-family has been postponed until sometime in 2022. Meanwhile, there are two documents still making their way through the process towards a final vote in City Council.
NPU-E, in which Ansley Park is an active participant, has voted to oppose both pieces of legislation. Please find both copies of the legislation and NPU-E’s comment letter at www.npueatlanta.org.
Sept. 24, 2021 Update
First Battle Victory – Campaign Continues
Thanks to all our neighborhood residents, the flyers, emails to elected officials, door hangers, yard signs, green tree ribbons and a petition all declaring NO TO REZONING has taken hold. City Planning Commissioner Tim Keane and Councilmember Amir Farokhi have deferred consideration of the two pieces of legislation (21-O-0454 and 21-O-0455) that would rezone 20% of Ansley Park from R-4 residential to MR/MU multi-family. The biggest threat to the neighborhood has been pushed back to gather additional neighborhood and NPU input. We have a great battle victory but the campaign is still on. The final draft of the Comprehensive Development Plan has yet to be released and proposed ordinance 21-O-0456 remains in play as scheduled. Please await further developments.
The Special Events Committee organizes many neighborhood social events and activities that help to promote a sense of community in Ansley Park. Attending these events is a great way to get to know your neighbors.

ANSLEY PARK History

Ansley Park Forever has put together what we are calling a “learning tool”; a treasure trove of information to educate neighbors about change that affects Ansley Park; what is at risk, our history of community involvement and great neighborhood planning, an explanation and examples of Historic/Landmark Districts in Atlanta. It contains a lot of information, so, we want to allow all residents the time to read what we’ve written, click the links to articles, web sites and studies, and then do their own research. Then we want to start a conversation to see if our community wants to explore further.
HISTORIC HOME PLAQUE APPLICATION
In a continuing commitment to preserve and protect the significance of its historic homes, the Ansley Park Civic Association History & Preservation Committee is excited to announce the historic plaque program. The purpose of the markers is to inform the community of Ansley Park’s historically significant homes and gardens, as well as outstanding architects, people, and events in Atlanta’s history.
