Interested in both of these communities -- wondering what the locals might say is the better of the two when it comes to family feel? I have children in elementary and high school -- want that home feeling in the neighborhood, and the schools to be of high quality as well. What do you think, and why?

Avery Park and Summergrove are both great neighborhoods; living in Newnan I am very familiar with both of them. I hate to choose, but I'd say Summergrove is a slightly better community. I think It's more easthetically pleasing and is closer to retail (although Avery Park is closer to Historic Newnan) Summergrove is in the East Coweta High school district and Avery park is the the Newnan High School district. Both are pretty much equally good schools. This is just my opinion; I would check both communties out for yourself

I would check to see which school is zoned for the house you are interested in Summergrove (I believe there are two or three elem. schools that feed into Summergrove, one being Newnan Crossing Elem.). We are temporarily housed in Newnan outside of Summergrove while we are building a new home in Sharpsburg. The school board here is highly INFLEXIBLE and refused to allow my child to go to the school in Sharpsburg zoned for our new house - despite letters from attorneys, builder and a notorized copy of our contract, etc. This resulted in my child having to attend Newnan Crossing in the interim. We have been disgusted with Newnan Crossing Elementary - for a variety of reasons from academics to school communcation to cleanliness to lazy, unprofessional teachers.

I highly suggest staying out of that district and ensuring that if you pick a home in Summergrove, it is not zoned for Newnan Crossing Elem.

thanks for the tips -- I believe that the Summergrove home I like would send my kids to Welch, a new school --- need to go inside for a tour, which I intend to do! HS is East Coweta.....tour that as well. Sharpsburg, huh? I gf just told me last night to look into that area because of the schools! I appreciate your insight, and pom martini, do I know you?? (lol, those are my favorite)

I owned a home in Summergrove and it is a great community. There is a lot of traffic in the area, but after they widen 54 it should help. There is a lot of shopping in the area also, with good restaurants. Sprayberry's is one of my favorite spots. I think you will love Summergrove, the community is wonderfull and has so many amenities.

Yes, Sharpsburg schools are well regarded. My child will begin going to Cannongate as soon as we move into our new home. Can't wait!

Summergrove is definitely a nice community!

I love pomegranate martini's too!

Avery Park and Summergrove are great for different reasons. Summergrove is a HUGE neighborhood! It is social for both, children and parents. Schools are also great! Avery Park also has great schools, is inside the city of Newnan, so very close to downtown and the square. The neighborhood is much smaller and even though it is also social it seems more quiet than Summergrove to me. If I had to choose, I would choose Avery Park. Simply because I enjoy being close to downtown Newnan, in a quiet community and I prefer smaller neighborhoods over larger ones.
