Tarpley City Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Tarpley City is part of the old iron mining section of Birmingham, Alabama that once supplied the area’s large steel industry. With the iron mines long gone by the 1950s, these old mines have been completely reclaimed by nature. Part of the 35211 zip code, Tarpley City lies south of Rutledge Avenue, east of Wilson Road, and north of Venice Road.
Most of the homes in Tarpley City have massive lots. Large trees line the streets, providing excellent canopy cover over area sidewalks. Numerous schools sit only about a quarter of a mile from many of the neighborhood’s homes. Children are often seen walking the neighborhood’s streets or riding their bikes with friends on their way to school.
One of the schools in the area is Lawson State Community College off of Wilson Road. This moderately sized community college offers a number of classes and degree programs, as well as a number of public amenities like tennis courts and athletic fields.
There is no better destination for recreation in Tarpley City than Oxmoor Valley Golf Course, which sits just south of the neighborhood off of Sunbelt Parkway.
