The Los Robles, which means, “the oaks,” is neighborhood located to the northeast of downtown Tallahassee, Florida. Comprised of both old and new larger homes on narrow, heavily-wooded streets Los Robles is one of Tallahassee’s oldest neighborhoods. The view of many of these homes is obscured by the dense woods. Los Robles is bordered on the southeast by Route 61 and on the west by Route 155. Los Robles Park is on the southeastern corner of the neighborhood and Lake Ella is just to the west.
Lake Ella was once part of the “Old Spanish Trail,” but its primary function now is that of flood control. It has a paved .6 mile trail that travels around the lake. Visitors can expect to see many ducks, geese, and turtles in the area.
Schools serving the Los Robles area include Amos P. Godby High School, Springwood Elementary School, and Ruediger Elementary School. Tallahassee is also the home of the campus of Florida State University. Seville Apartments, Seminole Grand, and Londontown Apartments are some of the apartment complexes nearby to Los Robles.
