Lake Forest Hills Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Like many of the suburban neighborhoods in the Jacksonville metropolitan area, Lake Forest Hills features proximity to schools, parks, and shops. The quiet Ribault River community six miles northwest of the city is flanked by Ribault Scenic Drive to the north, Avenue B to the west, Palmdale to the south, and Lem Turner Road to the east.
While the neighborhood itself consists mostly of residential homes, it shares amenities with bordering developments such as Ribault, Harborview, and Riverview. From the center of Lake Forest Hills, it’s just a short stroll or bike ride to Winton Drive Park and the historic Potters Field cemetery.
Highly-rated Sallye B. Mathis Elementary School, Ribault Middle School, and Ribault Senior High School are located within minutes of one another near Winton Drive Park. Lake Forest Hills residents enjoy public access to the high school’s tennis courts and sports fields. It’s just another couple miles to Bob Hayes Sports Complex, a new facility featuring soccer and football fields, a children’s playground, and picnic tables. Also nearby is the Bradham Brooks Northwest public library.
Several shops are located within walking distance of Lake Forest Hills. But for serious shopping cravings, it’s just a two-mile trip south to Gateway Shopping Center and Beach Plaza Shopping Center, which boast national-name clothing stores, restaurants, drugstores, and supermarkets.
Entertainment seekers can catch a performance at the Stage Aurora, a nonprofit company that provides art and drama opportunities to Jacksonville youth. Locals once voted the facility the No. 1 theater group in Jacksonville.
Lake Forest Hills’ tight-knit community and close proximity to downtown make it an increasingly popular place to call home.
