Garden District Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
In addition to grand old mansions, small bungalows, and professional offices, the Garden District has one very distinguished home, The Governor’s Mansion. With sidewalks, massive old trees, and beautiful landscaping through much of the area, it is a delightful neighborhood and appropriately named.
The Garden District is also quite convenient. Within its boundaries are a YMCA and the Rosa Parks Library. Along the south boundary are small retail establishments, restaurants, and a grocery store. Bound by I-85 along the north, it is also convenient to other parts of the city. The remaining boundary roads are Norman Bridge Road, West Fairview Avenue, and South Court Street.
Two colleges are within walking distance, Alabama State University and Huntingdon College. ASU joins the neighborhood along the east.
ASU offers undergraduate and graduate degrees to more than 5,600 students. From its beginnings in 1867 as a school for African-Americans, built with money raised by freed slaves, it has grown to become a world-class school. It is especially noted for education and health care fields and now offers a doctoral degree in microbiology. Huntingdon College serves 1,100 students with a focus on a core liberal arts curriculum.
Montgomery is the home of the internationally known Alabama Shakespeare Festival. The Festival is the sixth largest in the world, attracting more than 300,000 visitors each year. The Shakespeare, as it’s known locally, provides year-round entertainment and activities.
The State Capitol, the Civil Rights Memorial, the Alabama Department of Archives and History, and the Armory-Learning Arts Center are less than a mile away.
Recreation is as close as Montgomery Country Club, roughly a mile southeast. A highly-regarded public course, Lagoon Park Public Course, is close and easily accessible via I-85.
Many other attractions are nearby. The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts and Hank Williams Museum and Memorial are very popular sites.
