Brigadoon Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Surrounding scenic Lake Heather, the community of Brigadoon is located near Greater Northdale, an unincorporated suburb of Tampa. North Lakeview Drive defines the neighborhood to the north, south, and east, and Round Oak Drive to the west. Tampa is a 15-mile bus ride away.
Children in the region can attend Children’s Nest Day School, Claywell Elementary School, Hill Middle School, and Gaither High School. College students have access to University of South Florida, Life Christian University, and Florida College in the Tampa area.
Wide sidewalks allow for scenic strolls around the lake. Residents live within walking distance of the Tampa Golf Range and Learning Center and the Northlakes Community Center, which features tennis courts and baseball, softball, and T-ball fields. It’s a half-mile walk to the Dale Mabry Highway, which leads to nearby bakeries, restaurants, and retail stores. The Carollwood Commons shopping center about one mile south is anchored by a Target, Wal-Mart, and Ross.
Just across the highway, locals enjoy access to the expansive Northdale Golf and Tennis Club and the all-ages Tampa Metropolitan YMCA. North of the neighborhood, the well-shaded Lake Park offers a bevy of activities, including fishing, hiking, horseback riding, archery, picnic tables, children’s playgrounds, a remote control car race course, and a BMX track. Other points of interest include a large regional library and Take 2 Lounge, an independent movie theater with a bar and restaurant.
A pedestrian-friendly lakeside community with access to both suburban and metropolitan conveniences makes Brigadoon one of the Tampa region’s best up-and-coming neighborhoods.
