What makes College Park so special? It is the people who live here. College Park has managed to maintain a small-town feel even as it is home of the Georgia International Convention Center and with the town's close proximity to Hartsfield Jackson International Airport. Located 15 minutes southwest of Atlanta, College Park is a small town nestled within a large urban city. The people who live here make it what it has always been—an active and caring community. College Park has more than 800 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. It was home to prestigious Cox College and Georgia Military Academy, which became the largest preparatory school in the United States, Woodward Academy. As a tribute to higher institutions of learning, many streets are collegiately named.
