Berkeley Park is a neighborhood in the West Midtown, or Westside of Atlanta. Previously a farm, Berkeley Park was developed by E. Rivers Realty in the 1920s. At that time, the area was considered “contiguous to Howell Mills Road, between Chattahoochee Avenue and Collier Road.” It used to be considered a part of Underwood Hills. In 1996, Berkeley Park was recognized as an official neighborhood with the City of Atlanta. The early Berkeley Park homes were bought between $1000 – $2000. Today, the homes sell around the 300K mark.

The boundaries are I-75 to the North, Northside Drive to the East, Howell Mill on the West, and Bishop Street on the South side.

There is a Berkeley Park Neighborhood Association which meets every month. They put out a monthly newsletter as well to remind residents and businesses to attend meetings and to keep everyone up-to-date as to the goings-on in the neighborhood.

The City of Atlanta Fire Station #23 is in the neighborhood. The community participates in the City of Atlanta Police Department’s Crime Watch Program.
