For local shopping and dining, residents of Parish Heights are just one mile south of the Bellview Shopping Center, a small retail space that offers two supermarkets and several specialty shops and eateries. Many more independently-located retailers and restaurants can be found nearby, but for major shopping trips residents may opt to travel approximately 10 miles east to the larger Cordova and University Malls.
One of the major attractions near this community is the Osceola Municipal Golf Course, situated easily within walking distance to the northeast. This challenging, yet highly playable 18-hole course is open to the public, and several other public and private courses are also located close to home.
