Located directly south of Decatur, the crowning jewel of this neighborhood is the historic East Lake Golf Club, Atlanta's first country club founded in the early 1900's. Although a private facility, the club's history and ongoing philanthropic support of the East Lake Foundation is second to none. Walk or drive down any neighborhood street and you are sure to find a mix of restored and new construction homes. It is also an ideal location minutes from downtown Decatur or a short train ride to downtown Atlanta from the East Lake MARTA station. Other conveniences include the Charlie Yates Golf Course (public), East Lake Family YMCA, and the Drew Charter School. Although important by themselves, collectively they have contributed to a model success story of an urban neighborhood being transformed into a thriving place to live, learn, and play. Supporting the ongoing success of the community is the active East Lake Neighbors Community Association (ELNCA).
