The City of South Fulton: A City on the Rise

It represents the best of all worlds, from the bustling business districts on Roosevelt and Old National Highways to sprawling, rural scenes along the city’s picturesque southeast border. Communities such as Red Oak, Campbellton and Sandtown enjoy rich histories that have unfolded of hundreds of years.
The city is home to the South Fulton Parkway corridor, which is only minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The parkway serves as the largest commercial corridor within the city’s limits.
