Adair Park is a historic and contemporary community in the west section of the Atlanta, Georgia suburb of Decatur. It is one of Decatur’s most diverse communities in terms of building types, and includes several individual neighborhoods. Adair Park has single family residences, townhomes, cluster homes, institutional buildings and commercial buildings – built from the early 1900s to 2008. Its rough boundaries are: downtown Decatur to the east; Ponce de Leon Avenue to the north; Howard Avenue and the railroad tracks to the south; and Decatur’s city limits to the west. There is also an Adair Park in southwest Atlanta, but it is not part of the Decatur community.
The commercial areas of Adair Park are on its northern and southern boundaries. Decatur’s U.S. Post Office, St. Thomas More Catholic Church, restaurants and retail centers are aligned along Ponce de Leon Avenue in the north. There are also multiple small commercial buildings, as well as the East Lake MARTA station, on Howard Avenue in the south.
