North Dodge Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The North Dodge neighborhood is bordered by East Fort Lowell Road on the north and East Glenn Street on the south. The neighborhood is a mix of small, vintage style homes built between the 1930s and 1970s.
Traffic can sometimes congest the area, and pedestrian activities are generally limited to the neighborhood itself. However, residents seeking recreation have access to the 160-acre Gene C. Reid Park. At the park, one can walk, play tennis, or enjoy a game of golf. The David Bell Bike and Walking Path in the urban oasis gives residents ample opportunities to try out their sneakers or spin over the route on their bikes.
Schools in the area include Catalina High School and Salpointe Catholic High School. The nearby Children’s Choice Learning Center is a top-rated childcare facility.
Butterfly lovers will enjoy the Tucson Botanical Gardens’ “Butterfly Magic” display that showcases a variety of colorful species from around the globe. In fact, around 500-plus pupae are sent on a weekly basis to the Gardens for the exhibit, and you can even adopt a butterfly for a mere $5! Funds are used to maintain the display and support butterfly conservation. Tucson Botanical Gardens is open daily throughout the year with the exception of holidays.
Trail Dust Town is another attraction close to the North Dodge Community. A great place to take the family, Dust Town features a miniature train and a museum with relics from the U.S. Calvary. Children and adults alike will also appreciate the regular stunt shows. Pinnacle Peak offers a good western steak next door, and the nearby El Coral, located in an old territorial ranch, serves up a five-star adobe mud pie.
