It is located at East Wesley Road and Pinetree Drive. There is also a rustic clubhouse that looks like a log cabin where the Garden Hills Neighborhood Civic Association holds their meetings as well as neighborhood parties. Garden Hills is a true neighborhood in every sense of the word where children can also walk to neighborhood schools.
