Recognized as the largest park in the city of Atlanta, Chastain Park, originally named North Fulton Park, is also one of the most popular. Named after Troy Green Chastain, the former County Commissioner of North Fulton County, this community is what it is today because of Mr. Chastain’s purpose and consistent determination to create this wonderful park. Today it remains true to his vision; born more than 50 years ago. View Chastain Park homes for sale.
Today, the park’s features include the 18-hole North Fulton Golf Course and the 50-yard Olympic-size swimming pool which offered the first pool filter system in the city. The majority of the enhancing stonework in the picnic area was assembled in the early 1940’s. From the beginning, Mr. Chastain envisioned building in the Park an amphitheater. On June 20, 1944, Chastain Park Amphitheater commenced. A year later the riding stables were constructed to accommodate the horses used for the polo fields. In the 1950’s, these riding stables were converted into the Red Barn Restaurant which is recognized today as Horseradish Grill. This very popular contemporary southern dining establishment still reserves some of its old rustic flare with the original wood walls and enormous stone fireplace. In the early 1950’s, the polo fields were converted into the ball fields (4 fields for softball and 7 fields for baseball) which remains today. In 1979 the tennis center was rebuilt after a fire destroyed the original structure. The current facility includes nine tennis courts, locker rooms, restrooms and an office area.
