Zion City Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Zion City is a neighborhood in northeastern Birmingham, Alabama, less than 15 minutes from the heart of the downtown area. This community is west of 12th Avenue North and east of 5th Avenue north. East Lake Boulevard runs west-to-east through the area, as does Zion City Road. Zion City is situated within Jefferson County, in the 35206 zip code area. Area communities include Airport Highlands and Brownsville Heights.
There are several amenities within a short distance of Zion City. One of the most significant of these is the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport, situated less than a mile to the southwest. Very near the airport are Lynn Park and adjacent East Lake Park. The former offers 12 tennis courts, and the latter features a lake with surrounding walking/jogging trails and several playing fields. Further south is another option for outdoor recreation within a short drive of Zion City – the Ruffner Mountain Nature Center.
Immediately to the east of Zion City is the Roebuck Municipal Golf Course. This public, 18-hole course is a par 71, regulation length course. It is great for families, beginners, or the average weekend golfer, but may not be challenging enough for a more experienced player.
Just east of the golf course is a popular retail area, which provides Zion City residents with access to the necessities. Here, you’ll find the Parkway East Huffman Shopping Center, Roebuck Shopping City Shopping Center, and Roebuck Plaza Shopping Center. Combined, these retail centers offer a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Walgreen’s, CVS Pharmacy, pet supply store, and several eateries and specialty shops.
This is just the beginning of what the Zion City area has to offer. Interstate 59 and Highway 11 are just a short drive away to the south and provide residents with easy access to the rest of the city. The downtown area, which offers plenty to see and do, is little more than a seven-mile drive.
