Magnolia Park/ Blueberry Hill, near the intersection of DeRenne and Skidaway, was originally developed in the 1950s by the Larmara Company, a very prominent developer in Savannah in the post-war era. It is bordered by the Truman Parkway, Bacon Park Drive, DeRenne Avenue, and Skidaway Road. It is a close-knit neighborhood with frequent events, including a 4th of July Parade, Oyster Roasts, and Barbecues.
What the neighbors Say:
My neighbors take care of the homes and their yards and everything is always pretty and neat and clean. It is quiet, but there is also activity with people walking and bike riding and kids playing. Lots of people ride around in golf carts. I love the new trail and I like that there is a playground and a pool. We are convenient to everything. We can easily hop on the Truman, and we are central to all of Savannah. We are walking distance to Cohen’s, my favorite restaurant in town. Our neighbors are really nice. There is nothing pretentious about Magnolia Park. It’s like living in Mayberry! Oh – our July 4th parade is pretty spectacular as well. – Magnolia Park Resident, JJ.
I like the freedom that the kids have to move around. It is small enough that they can always be close by but feel free to just go without supervision. Because of its location, we don’t get much thru traffic which is an issue in other neighborhoods. The kids also have access to the baseball fields, the community pool, and now the Truman Trail. We love being able to ride our bikes safely all the way to Lake Mayer and later on to Daffin Park. They do a lot of community events. We get two food trucks every week. We like to walk to Cohen’s retreat to have a glass of wine. Is right off Truman and a short drive to South Savannah and Downtown. – Magnolia Park Resident, Carmen.
It’s like living in the 1950s! Very family-oriented. Everyone looks out for each other. No “cut through” option, so very low traffic. Neighborhood pool with a big, shady park. Savannah’s best-kept secret (Cohen’s Retreat) a short walk away. Easy access to great groceries (Food Lion is my new favorite). Wonderful neighborhood schools. Should I go on??? Really, it’s the first time in my life I’ve really felt like part of the fabric of a neighborhood. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in Savannah! -Magnolia Park Resident, Ruth
Magnolia Park is near many shopping centers and restaurants. Just up the road, you will find The Wyld. Located at 2740 Livingston Road, this marsh front restaurant doesn’t disappoint. Most of the tables are outdoor, and they serve local seafood, burgers, tacos, and more. Our favorite thing on the menu is the summer succotash– a combination of beans, garlic, squash, corn and butter, a southern favorite with a modern twist. Full bar featuring the famous “PainKiller” Slushy!
Don’t miss Cohen’s Retreat, just a short walk up the road. They have beautiful decor and a modern southern menu that can’t be beat. Friendly bartenders, a great place to unwind with a glass of wine!
