Springtree Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Situated northwest of downtown Gainesville, Springtree is a suburban neighborhood with a mix of single-family homes, apartments, and condominiums. The neighborhood saw record growth periods in the 1970s and 1980s. Most of the residents work in white-collar occupations such as sales, management, and health care.
Located in the 32605 zip code area, Springtree is bordered on the north by Northwest 45th Avenue, on the south by Northwest 39th Avenue, on the west by Northwest 34th street and on the east by Northwest 26th Terrace.
Residents in Springtree have easy access (less than five minutes) to Interstate 75, the area’s main north/south arterial, via Northwest 39th Avenue (State Highway 222), which serves as the southern border of the neighborhood.
For recreation, the neighborhood is within ten minutes of two excellent parks, the City of Gainesville Northside Park and Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park. Northside Park (5725 Northwest 34th Street) has Gainesville’s only public disc golf course, as well as four lighted tennis courts, four racquetball courts in a concrete block structure, and a relatively new playground built a couple of years ago. Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park (4732 Millhopper Road) features a bowl-shaped sinkhole that drops down 120 feet to a miniature rain forest. Visitors can also enjoy picnicking, wildlife viewing of squirrels, rabbits and birds, hiking on a one-half mile nature trail, and a boardwalk system that leads to the bottom of the sinkhole.
Springtree residents are less than five minutes away from Oaks Mall (6419 Newberry Road), which has over 140 stores, including Hollister Co., Ann Taylor, and Abercrombie and Fitch, as well as a food court and a children’s play area.
