A: Olmsted, who designed NYC's Central Park and has been described as the father of American landscape architecture, had a hand in the part of Druid Hills along the Ponce de Leon Avenue corridor, according to Robert Hartle's book called "Druid Hills." Olmsted and Atlantan Joel Hurt, who developed Inman Park and Edgewood Avenue, struck up a friendship and were trying to work together to develop another area northeast of downtown Atlanta. Several factors kept them from realizing their dream, but by 1893, Olmsted stayed true to his style and developed a plan that focused on the large homes, spectacular trees, parks and paths along Ponce de Leon (You now know who to blame for that narrow road). Ultimately, Asa Candler, Forrest and George Adair and Preston Arkwright fully developed Druid Hills in the early 20th Century.
