Steelwood Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located in the 35802 zip code, Steelwood can be found to the east of US Highway 31, south of Airport Road, and west of Cart T. Jones Drive in Huntsville, Alabama. The neighborhood is located in a random pocket of heavy forest adding a pleasant bit of scenery and canopy cover on the hot Alabama summer days. Since there is little commercial development in the immediate area, residents are able to go for a walk, a run or even a bike ride without the safety risks associated with busier neighborhoods. The surrounding area is also quite a pedestrian-friendly locale, with sidewalks that connect residents to many of the biggest attractions.
Few neighborhoods are as family friendly as Steelwood, with its great schools and its even better parks. One of the best recreation areas is near Whitesburg Middle School and Whitesburg Elementary School off of Sanders Road. From here, there are numerous amenities for residents of all ages. Within Whitesburg Park, there are a number of baseball and softball fields used for youth leagues, a large multiple-purpose field, a playground, and a swimming pool. On the other side of the school is Fernbell Park, which complements the offerings of Whitesburg with tennis courts, basketball courts and more athletic fields.
Another major destination is off of Runway Road which is only about half a mile from Steelwood. This is where the Huntsville Tennis Center, Huntsville Running Park and Huntsville Municipal Golf Course can be found. With all of these offerings, residents always have a place to go for recreation and a change of scenery without ever leaving their own community.
