Parkway Terrace Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
South Tucson, ZIP code 85713, is home to the Park Terrace neighborhood. Its name is a reflection of the fact that it sits near the Gene C. Reid Park. The Park Terrace neighborhood’s boundary on the north is East 22nd Street. The eastern border runs along South Bristol Avenue, and Aviation Highway covers the entire southwest border of the neighborhood.
Eastmoor Park in the southwest corner of the community has the Miko leash-free area for dogs, named for Miko the police dog, as well as access to the Aviation bike way. The Gene C. Reid Park or simply Reid Park, is named after its founder, the Parks and Recreations director in 1965. It is only a few blocks away. The large green area has undoubtedly grown well beyond its original vision, as it is the home to Reid Zoo, Hi Corbet field, a bandstand, and the adjacent Randolph Municipal Golf Course.
The well-manicured streets of the Park Terrace community are a mixture of classic hacienda, Spanish, and ranch-style homes. Most of the properties in the neighborhood have landscaping decorated with water-conserving plants, shrubs, and desert designs. The neighborhood is on the eastern side of the ZIP code. Statistically, it contributes income averages on the higher side, as well families with two or more cars. The second-highest mode of transportation is carpools. Public transportation is low in usage yet readily available through Sun Tran bus lines 1, 7, and 17.
The uniqueness of the Park Terrace neighborhood is its proximity to a large number of activities and its easy access to the nearby freeway and bike way. The neighborhood, tucked away in its corner, breaks the monotony of the numbered streets with colorful names like Crosby Vista, Keswick Circle, Warwick Vista, and the end of South Tucson Boulevard.
