Nestled to the southeast of Savannah’s Victorian District is the quaint residential neighborhood of Baldwin Park. Within these few blocks you can see an architectural timeline of downtown Savannah. From the Victorian homes and mansions that line its border on Victory Drive to the early 20th century bungalows that make up most of the neighborhood, every home has character and charm. Originally this neighborhood was part of the Chatham Crescent development, an area known for its curvilinear streets, roundabouts, and parks. With the creation of Victory Drive in 1919 Chatham Crescent was separated, and the north end became what is today known as Baldwin Park.
At the center of this neighborhood is its namesake, a circular park that is the ideal environment for walking, picnics, and recreation. From the park, looking to the south, you can see the center of Chatham Crescent, picturesquely lined with palmetto trees, all the way down to Teideman Park and the Savannah Arts Academy on Washington Avenue.
The Parkside neighborhood, so named because the community borders Savannah’s stunning Daffin Park, runs west to east from Waters Avenue to Bee Road and from Washington Avenue to around 52nd St from north to south. Parkside features architectural styles built throughout Georgia during the first half of the 20th century, including Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Cape Cod and English Vernacular Revival. In Daffin Park, Grayson Stadium is an excellent example of World War II-era stadium design.
Leafy shade covered streets and Craftsman style homes are a hallmark of the Parkside neighborhood. Located immediately adjacent to one of Savannah’s acclaimed green spaces, Parkside is a quaint close-knit community offering an affordable alternative to Ardsley Park, its upscale cousin to the west. Houses in Parkside are mostly one- and two-story brick-and-frame dwellings built between 1914 and 1947 and feature a variety of architectural styles that include Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Cape Cod, and English Vernacular Revival. Charming bungalows are perhaps the signature architectural style in this neighborhood though there is a sprinkling of larger homes, multi-family buildings and even a few modernist gems. Parkside represents an early example of an early twentieth-century automobile suburb in Georgia.
Ardsley Park-Chatham Crescent is a large, highly intact residential area developed, beginning in 1910 as two adjacent planned subdivisions. The plan of Ardsley Park, a regular grid with landscaped squares, is extremely important to the fabric of historic Savannah as it is a twentieth century variant of Oglethorpe’s original city plan.
In 1985, Ardsley Park and Chatham Crescent were named to the National Register of Historic Places under the collective name of Ardsley Park. Ardsley Park’s central location, its physical beauty and strong property values positions it as one of Savannah’s most desirable communities. Thanks to a strong and active neighborhood association as well other community-minded residents Ardsley regularly lands on “Best of…” lists in local publications. The various parks, broad streetscapes, and lush canopy encourage walking, biking and running. Waters Avenue and Abercorn are direct routes both Downtown and to the Southside and Victory Drive is a straight shot to the Islands. So, Downtown is only ten minutes away and one can be on Tybee Island in about twenty minutes. Also, Ardsley Park abuts the Ardmore community, home to red-hot Habersham Village with its shops, restaurants and bars as well as diamond-shaped Hull Park, which has become a popular, kid-friendly recreational site.
DAFFIN PARK – Amenities of the Park include soccer fields, football, baseball, volleyball, a well-equipped children’s playground, basketball courts, swimming pools, miles of sidewalks for running and a beautiful stocked pond with a lovely gazebo and fountain in the center. The gazebo can be rented out for parties and most weekends you’ll see families and friends having a cookout or tailgating. A really great place to walk dogs and meet other dog owners is the Herty Pines Dog Park a well designed and user-friendly park next to Grayson Stadium. The center of the park features a grass promenade that runs the length of the park amid huge oaks with limbs stretching out and forming a shaded moss canopy. At the east end of the park is Grayson Stadium, home to the minor league team, The Savannah Bananas.
