The neighborhood is 602.1 acres (2.437 km2) large and bounded by unincorporated Fulton County on all sides, except for the city of Atlanta's NPU P and its Niskey Lake neighborhood on the south.[2] The unincorporated area to the west is organized as the Sandtown community.

Midwest Cascade is located south of Cascade Road, along Regency Center Drive.[3]

The Atlanta City Council voted to annex Midwest Cascade to the City of Atlanta on September 29, 2006.[4]
