The first lots in Peachtree Heights East (PHE) were sold in 1909, making this neighborhood the first formally-organized neighborhood in Buckhead. The widow of the neighborhood’s developer, E. Rivers, deeded the Parks in trust to the neighborhood in the 1930s. The Parks and Duck Pond have always been part of this neighborhood and are not maintained by the City of Atlanta. As a result, the residents of Peachtree Heights East own the Parks and are responsible for all Park maintenance and improvements.
Today, the Peachtree Heights East Board of Trustees, the Peachtree Heights East Neighborhood Association (PHENA) and the Ladies of the Lake Garden Club work closely together to insure that these wonderful Parks are maintained, improved and protected. In fact, 48% of the PHENA annual dues-funded budget goes to the Parks. To stretch this money, PHENA organizes regular Clean-Up Days for neighbors to work together to prune and weed the Parks.
