Narrow streets, Churches with steeples and adjoining small cemetery plots and street after tree-lined street of delightful mid-century ranch style homes and bungalows -- the  perfect neighborhood for those seeking affordable entry-level housing or investment opportunities.

Like many such southern towns, it sprung up around a rail stop, and today the train tracks still run parallel along Main Street. But now, a charming picket-fenced park has sprung up along and around those tracks, a park presently aburst with summertime blossoms.

Currently, many homes sell for less than $50,000 in this quiet community…sometimes far less for a fixer-upper. For a Georgia real estate bargain, be sure to check into the short sales in Forest Park GA.

Family friendly as they come, this small town boasts no less than nine beautiful parks and numerous smaller playgrounds. Yes, the parks are where the town got it’s name. In fact, this northern Clayton County town claims a very interesting history. From one square mile known as Forest Station/ Astor when chartered in 1908 to today's nine point three square miles known as Forest Park the identity of this area has changed dramatically.

Forest Park has not changed as much over the past half-century as other metro Atlanta cities – a fact which makes it an attractive choice for those who like coming home to a slower, homier pace after a day of working in the big city. The major portion of the city's growth and development took place in the late 1950's through the middle 1960's.

But a couple of planned projects may add new life to the city in the near future: First, there are plans to refurbish the Georgia State Farmers Market to make it a stronger destination location. Plans range from modest remodeling to a rail line from the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Longer term, the future closing of the Fort Gillem military base, entirely within the city limits, could free up more than 1,000 acres of tax- producing land, bringing jobs and new homes to the region.
