Brookhaven’s urban town center consists of mixed-use developments surrounded by residential communities interspersed with 17 named parks that lend the beauty of greenspaces and the opportunity for just about every type of recreation. Within walking distance or a short drive, Brookhaven offers a golf course, pedestrian and biking trails, tennis courts, ball fields, picnic areas, playgrounds, pools, lakes and a dog park.
Known for its family-friendly appeal, Brookhaven maintains a distinct fashionable atmosphere that reflects a high quality of life, and its connection to Atlanta gives residents the best of both worlds: the sophistication of Atlanta without the traffic, noise and overcrowding. The attractions of Atlanta are a 25-minute ride on MARTA. Major highways passing through the city connect residents to Atlanta, the rest of the state and the world beyond.
Within the city itself, tree-lined streets, a highly desirable school system and a variety of recreational opportunities attract families, young professionals, retirees and anyone who enjoys a relaxed suburban life. International cuisine is available at local restaurants as well as down-home Southern fare, and Brookhaven residents have their choice of entertainment, nightlife and sporting events to make life complete.
