Bates Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Bates neighborhood is located on the west side of Mobile, Alabama, approximately 13 miles from the heart of the downtown area. Encompassing all of the Mobile Regional Airport and much of the surrounding area, this community is bounded by Tanner Williams Road/County Road 70 on the north, Airport Boulevard/County Road 56 on the south, and County Road 31 on the east. Its western boundary is less conspicuous, but the westernmost point extends all the way to Snow Road/Country Road 25. Part of Mobile County, Bates is in the 36608 zip code area.
Although much of this 5.512-square mile community is devoted to the airport, the surrounding area hosts some residential options. As of 2009, this community was home to almost 750 residents.
Besides proximity to the airport, residents of Bates enjoy easy access to a variety of area amenities. Just outside of neighborhood bounds on the east is the Sun Ray Plaza Shopping Center, a convenient destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Several additional retail centers can be found within five miles east of this community, closer to downtown Mobile.
For local health care, residents of Bates are roughly two miles west of Providence Hospital, one of the most significant medical centers on the city’s west side.
Residents of Bates also enjoy proximity to the Greater Gulf State Fairgrounds and the University of South Alabama, both situated a few miles east of the neighborhood.
Nearby golfing options include the Azalea City Golf Club, Spring Hill Golf Course, and Mobile Country Club, all situated within five miles east of Bates. Clearly, the big question for residents of this community isn’t where to find a golf course, but rather whether they prefer a public or private golfing experience.
