Providence Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Providence is a relatively new neighborhood in Huntsville, Alabama. It is located to the west of the intersection of Old Monrovia Road and Providence Main Street in the 35806 zip code. This mixed development community was meant to allow residents to have convenience that was measured in “footsteps” rather than miles. Homes here are built so that residents are able to easily access restaurants, office space, and community features such as parks and even the local school, Providence K-8.
Homes within Providence are meant to be quite diverse to meet the many different needs of residents. Homes can be found in a number of different sizes and designs. Some of the designs include estates, lofts, cottages, and townhouses. There are also rental units that are available for those that aren’t interested or able to purchase. Swimming pools, playgrounds, and fitness centers add a sense of community to the area and give recreational options without leaving the neighborhood.
Another great aspect of the community is the long, mostly paved trail that takes residents throughout the area without having to contend with traffic. The trail heads through the heavy forest along the western edge of Providence and connects to Old Monrovia Road to the north, University Drive, and Old Mission Pike. Several communities can be found along the way making it possible to meet up with friends. The path is popular with walkers, runners, and especially cyclists that are looking for several miles of quality pavement. Since most of the trail is through thick forest it is possible to see wildlife including birds, deer, turtles, snakes, and more.
