Atla is a village in Juuru Parish, Rapla County, Estonia. It is located about 13 km (8 mi) northeast of the town of Rapla, just east of Juuru and 6 km (4 mi) northwest of Kaiu, by the road nr 14 (KosePurila road). As of 2011 Census, the village's population was 81.[1]

Atla Manor was first mentioned as Groß-Attel in 1422 when it belonged to Hannes van Treyden. 16th–17th century the manor belonged to the Dücker family. After the Great Northern War it was owned by the Maydells and the Helffreichs. From 1873 to its dispossession in 1919 the Barlöwens lived there.[2] Nowadays a private pottery is located in the manor.

In March 2011 the Oxford Sustainable Group notified about a plan to build a new 0.56 km² sustainable real estate development, one of the leaders in Europe, called "Oxford Park" into Atla. The new development is intended to provide energy, commercial, social, recreational and living spaces for around 350 households and create up to 600 jobs.[3] As of May 2013 no construction activity has not yet been started.
