Candler Park Local History Collection - Unveiling

This Local History Collection, the product of a partnership between the BiRacial History Project and Mary Lin Elementary, will be housed in a special area of the Media Center at the Mary Lin Elementary School for use in school and by the community. Under the guidance of Mary Lin’s Principal and Media Center Director, the Collection will be available to students, teachers and staff, families, neighbors and researchers. The Collection will support Lin’s local history curriculum and encourage multigenerational neighborhood interest. This is a project that's been in the works for a while, and it'll be exciting to see it fully realized. For more information, email

There are curently 35 sheep penned up on the hill on the Candler Park Drive side of the park. They're working hard to clear out some overgrown invasive foliage. An electric fence and two sheep dogs are keeping the sheep on task. Read more about them on the page for the "Meet the Sheep" event, scheduled for today from 2-5.

Leash Laws - Quick Reminder

Aug 17 2013

Neighborhood residents should be mindful of local ordinances regarding keeping dogs on leashes. 

Fulton County law (see: Fulton County Code of Ordinances, Section 34-205) states that dogs cannot leave the premises of their owner without being held on a leash and under the control of a competent individual. Leashes must also be no more than six feet long.

Further, City of Atlanta law (see: City of Atlanta Code of Ordinances, Section 110-70) states that in parks, pets must be leashed and cleaned up after, and that even when leashed, pets (other than service dogs) aren't allowed in swimming pools/pool areas, tennis courts, or within 15 feet of fences or structures.
