Neighborhoods: Powers Park, Chattahoochee Plantation
Just outside of the Perimeter, some of Atlanta’s best natural offerings rest alongside the seat of commerce—not to mention some fine residential opportunities.
30067 starts about where I-285 and I-75 meet up, and the ZIP extends northward, straddling the Chattahoochee river to the east, and the outskirts of Marietta, Ga. to the west. There’s a fair amount in between: Powers Park, cut through by Powers Ferry road and Paper Mill respectively, harbor some lovely homes that tout proximity to the prime real estate of the northern shore of the Chattahoochee River.
On the Marietta side, one must remember that Marietta is quite a substantial place in its own right. Bucolic as it is, it has long maintained a reputation as one of the oldest, most exclusive portions of the northern suburbs: in addition to a selection of lovely restaurants, this corner of the Atlanta metropolitan bucks up against Kennesaw State University and Six Flags White Water, not to mention Dobbins Air Reserve Base.
But despite the proximity, the real charm of this area of town resides in its neighborhoods. Quiet cul-de-sacs, filled with longtime residents establish a sense of community that’s palpable, while the ever-present through lane of I-75 grants a connection to the heart of the city, less than 20 minutes away.
