Albeit cliché, Loring Heights is considered one of Atlanta’s “best kept secrets.” It is an intown community that offers its residents all the geographic conveniences that come with that location, but it is cozy, tree-filled and packed with 1940s real estate.
Named after “Brigadier-General William Wing Loring of the Provisional Army of the Confederate States,” according to the official Loring Heights website, the community was once divided into Lynhurst Acres and Deering Road. Now one neighborhood, this metro Atlanta gem offers hilly landscapes, a dog park, a duck pond and plenty of greenspace, including the newer Tanyard Creek Greenspace.
There is a solid Loring Heights Neighborhood Association in place that works to “develop community cohesion…promote a secure and safe environment within the urban surroundings of Atlanta…[and] formulate, disseminate, and pursue a community program for the betterment of Loring Heights,” according to the LHNA website. They also sponsor an annual Easter egg hunt, Friday fiestas and holiday parties for the community.
You will find Loring Heights located between Northside Drive and Peachtree Street, and the area is bordered by Midtown and Buckhead.
The youth of Loring Heights attend E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle and North Atlanta High. You can read more about these schools from the LHNA official website.
