College Park is a pretty ok neighborhood however it is split between two counties, South Fulton and Clayton. I am on the Clayton side and I love it! It is very convenient and everything you need is close by. Overall it is a good place to live
Living in college park it was a good atmosphere. I went to high school in College Park. A lot to do and see and it’s right near metro Atlanta. I think things are still growing there. Opportunity to grow and get better is there. So much you can do to better yourself and circumstances. I believe that living there and going through High School there help me channel my ambition to get more out of life than anything. I believe that you can get that same ambition I did when I was there! College Park is where you can establish yourself and build up to where you want to be in life! You can do it! You can be great!
