Foxcroft Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located on the northeast side of Tallahassee, the Foxcroft neighborhood is comprised of single-family homes along Foxcroft Drive and a series of surrounding streets. The Florida subdivision is bordered by Thomasville Road to the west, Velda Dairy Road to the north, Forsyth Way to the south, and West Shannon Lakes Drive to the east. The residences are primarily single-story dwellings, with most constructed in the 1980s. Densely wooded lots offer residents plenty of privacy in this family-friendly subdivision.
Several schools serve the neighborhood, including Desoto Trail Elementary School to the north and Community Christian School, also a quick commute. Cobb Middle School is within seven miles of the Foxcroft subdivision, and Lawton Chiles High School is a short ride to the north along Thomasville Road. College students can attend Tallahassee Community College. This school offers programs in areas such as nursing, dental hygiene, computer technology, and criminal justice.
Foxcroft shoppers have only a brief commute to the Tallahassee Mall, which has more than 75 specialty stores, a state-of-the-art movie theater megaplex, and several eateries. Additional shopping opportunities are available in downtown Tallahassee’s bustling business district, which is a 15-minute trip to the southeast along Thomasville Road.
Another popular attraction is the Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park, only two miles southwest of the community. This 1,076-acre park lines the shores of Lake Hall and features an array of ornamental gardens. It offers visitors activities ranging from fishing, canoeing, and kayaking to hiking, bicycling, and swimming, all within five minutes of the Foxcroft neighborhood.
