Woodland Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Woodland Park, which is south of downtown Gainesville, Florida, is aptly named because of its tree growth and nearby conservation areas. It is a sparsely populated, somewhat rural area where most of the residents work in service-oriented jobs and the median household income is around $25,000, which is significantly lower than the U.S. average of around $57,000.
Located in the 32641 zip code, Woodland Park is bordered on the north by Southeast 19th Place, on the south by Southeast 20th Place, on the west by Southeast 19th Place, and on the east by Southeast 4th Street.
A few blocks east of the neighborhood is the Newnans Lake Conservation area. The highlight of this pristine setting is a 7,000-acre lake, which is encircled by Spanish moss-draped trees and swamps. Woodland Park residents can travel to the park in just a few minutes for boating and fishing. The lake is stocked with over 120,000 largemouth bass fingerlings, and bream and catfish are also big catches. In addition, the area, which spans 5,704-acres, has trails for biking and hiking, and opportunities for bird watchers to catch a glimpse of great blue herons, osprey, and sandhill cranes. Wildlife lovers should keep their eyes pealed for turkeys, foxes, and white-tailed deer.
The nearby T.B. McPherson Recreation Center, at 1717 Southeast 15th Street, has a community center with lots of activities for children and adults.
Area grade-school students attend Charles W. Duval Elementary, Joseph Williams Elementary, and Lake Forest Elementary. Junior-high students have Abraham Lincoln Middle School and high schoolers go to Eastside High School.
