Cisco Gardens Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Cisco Gardens is a neighborhood on the far northwest side of Jacksonville, Florida, less than 20 minutes from the downtown area. This large community extends to the railroad tracks on the north and Commonwealth Avenue and a local waterway on the south. Its eastern boundary is roughly created by Interstate 295 and Imeson Road, and its western boundary includes Chaffee Road, Pritchard Road, and the railroad tracks. Part of Duval County, Cisco Gardens is in the 32219 zip code area. Nearby communities include Lincoln Villas and Bulls Bay.
Most of this community is devoted to undeveloped land and industrial interests, including the Stone Mountain Industrial Park. However, a few residential areas can be found throughout, the most prominent of which is a development in the northernmost portion of the community, along Paxton Road. A few dozen single-family homes can be found in this area, scattered about on spacious lots surrounded by wooded areas. Closer to the center of the neighborhood, along Utsey Road, are several larger homes.
Although the surrounding area is mostly industrial and residential, nearby Interstate 295 hosts some commercial offerings that serve residents of Cisco Gardens.
For outdoor recreation and nature viewing, Cary State Forest is situated within fives miles to the west, along US Highway 301 and State Highway 200. A popular destination for school field trips, the state park land is mostly used for environmental education and includes a nature trail and open-air teaching pavilion.
For more recreation, entertainment, shopping, and dining, residents of Cisco Gardens make the roughly 18 minute drive into downtown Jacksonville, which hosts several major medical centers, a few higher education options, and several cultural attractions. Sports fans come to the Midtown area to cheer on the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team, or watch the Jacksonville Suns Minor League Baseball team hit it out of the park.
