Resident Favorites

There’s always something fun to do in the Parkins Mill area from the Gower Pool and park to neighborhood events and local hangouts. According to Tim and Blake Brookshire, who I sold a home to in 2015, their favorite thing about the area is that they “…are situated between the Augusta Road area and Verdae/Woodruff – we can get to either so quickly!”

They added that “a super fun and casual Friday evening in the neighborhood is spent meeting friends at Grateful Brew for a drink and grabbing dinner at Pita House (delicious!) or from the nightly food truck.  Greenfield’s at Verdae is wonderful for authentic bagels in the morning or for a quality sandwich at lunch.”

Other local favorites (including mine) are: Delicious pizza from Frodos, healthy fare at Kitchen Sync, and happy hour and more at Fitzpatrick’s Food and Spirits!
