Welcome to Smyrna, GA!
Smyrna is located about 10 miles northwest of Atlanta, Georgia and is considered an integral part of the Metro Atlanta area. Known as the "Jonquil City," it derives this name from the thousands of jonquils that flourish in gardens and along the streets in early spring.
Williams Park - often referred to as our oldest neighborhood. This is where you'll find porch-at-the-sidewalk sweet. Craftsman, Victorian and other historic home styles are abundant. The appeal of this neighborhood goes well beyond the traditional. Housing options also include lofts and emerging mixed-use - a bit of urban chic mixed with the sweet. Like having friendly, interesting neighbors and being close to shops and restaurants? The Williams Park neighbors hold an annual garage sale, and a fall festival in addition to other social events. The Williams Park neighborhood is a short walk from the downtown and our famous Market Village.
