Avondale Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Avondale neighborhood of Savannah, Georgia, is situated southeast of the Historic District East and the city’s famous 30-acre Forsyth Park. It is advantageously located for easy transitions to other areas of the city and the highway system.
Harry Truman Parkway, which runs north-south through the city, is a five-minute drive from the center of the neighborhood. Interstate 16/U.S. Highway 17, connecting east-west locations, is 12 minutes away. The intersection of Interstate 16 and Interstate 95 is just 20 minutes west for Avondale residents.
Pennsylvania, Alaska, and North Carolina Avenues and Bonaventure Road bound the Avondale neighborhood. The criss-cross of neighborhood streets is populated by single-family homes, each with its own yard, many of which are fenced. Both bike- and pedestrian-friendly, Avondale is also a good place to walk the family dog.
Avondale Park, one of a number of community parks in the city, is located at the corner of Alabama and Ohio Avenues, near the western edge of the subdivision. The park is part of the City of Savannah’s Playgrounds Program, which provides supervised play and organized activities for children, including arts and crafts, games, and athletics. The park has playground equipment with swings and plenty of open space for active children.
The public schools in the area are part of the Chatham County School System, which also provides bus transportation for the neighborhood. Children enrolled in kindergarten through grade five can attend Shuman Elementary, and those in grades six through eight attend Hubert Middle School. Avondale high school students attend Savannah High on Pennsylvania Avenue and have a choice of programs. Savannah High offers curriculum in Liberal Studies and Law and Criminal Justice, which are separate schools sharing a single campus.
