Oak Flower Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Perhaps one of the prettiest mid-city neighborhoods in Tucson is that of Oak Flower. Just north of the center of Tucson is this quiet, tight-knit community.
The Neighborhood Association of Oak Flower does a lot to keep their small part of Tucson beautiful. Even the few feral cats of the area have an officer on the the association board looking out for their interests. Among the many events Oak Flower hosts each year is the Holiday Decorating Contest, where residents try to one-up their neighbors with increasingly complex, festive decorations on their houses and in their yards during the holiday season.
Despite Oak Flower being one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the area, the city of Tucson is currently developing the area even further with two recent grants that were awarded to a group of Neighborhood Associations in the area, the Glenn Street Neighbors Project and the Alvernon/Grant Initiative. Both of these grants will go far toward making Oak Flower an even more wonderful place to live in the coming years.
Residents of Oak Flower have a variety of businesses to choose from, including a small Wal-Mart, which has fortunately not hurt many of the other businesses in the area. Although mostly residential, Oak Flower has a good mix of other attractions, from a cocktail lounge to an adult care home. There is even a professional pet grooming service that actually makes house calls in the neighborhood. The only real lack is in fast food; only a Wendy’s is within the neighborhood limits, though other popular fast food restaurants are just another mile or two outside Oak Flower.
Two parks fall just beyond the neighborhood limits: Tucson Botanical Gardens and McCormick Park. Both are within walking distance from Oak Flower. The local hospital, Tucson Medical Center, is less than a mile from Oak Flower’s borders, and the University of Arizona is a short three-mile drive away.
