Chickasaw Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The west Louisville neighborhood of Chickasaw offers awesome views of the Ohio River. Bound by Chickasaw Park and the Ohio River, Hale Avenue, West Broadway and 34th Street, Chickasaw Park anchors the neighborhood.
One of the 18 parks designed by the Olmsted Brothers, Chickasaw Park claims the only free clay tennis courts in Louisville. Covering 61 acres, the park provides amenities for picnics with shelter areas, grills, picnic tables and playgrounds. A catch and release fishing lake and a new sprayground are popular areas. Chickasaw Park has ball fields, basketball courts, a walking path and horseshoe pits. River frontage in the park presents impressive views along the banks of the grand Ohio River.
Another tranquil area to get in touch with nature, the newer development of William F. Miles Park allows visitors to canoe down six miles of Floyds Fork Creek. Plans include eventual development of a 27 mile expanse.
Chickasaw has a proud heritage of multi-cultural advocacy. The neighborhood works together to promote social and economic growth through the vision of the Chickasaw Federation. The Federation consists of clubs, area businesses, organizations and neighborhood residents.
Prospective residents are often attracted to the Chickasaw urban neighborhood for its low housing costs. Home buyers or renters can find reasonable rates on a variety of types and sizes of homes. Area historical homes contrast with high rise apartments, offering an array of housing options.
Walkability of the neighborhood is another plus for Chickasaw. As part of the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities Project, in 2009 Chickasaw residents and volunteers participated in the Chickasaw Stroll. The Chickasaw Stroll covered all streets in the Chickasaw neighborhood, documenting observations on sidewalks, curbs, lighting and other factors listed on the study. The combined scores placed Chickasaw in the good to very good range of walkability.
