Why developers in the 1940s decided to name this sleepy residential neighborhood Sherwood Forest is anyone?s guess. But once you name something Sherwood Forest, you kind of have to follow through? ? And follow through they did. Robin Hood Road is the neighborhood?s main thoroughfare. Friar Tuck Road and Little John Trail overlook the Ansley Golf Course. Well-kept mid-century ranches dot Lady Marian Lane and Nottingham Way. Like so many neighborhoods in Atlanta, Sherwood Forest is excited about a future BeltLine connection, since the loop is within walking distance.
