Seneca Gardens Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The charming, historic and centrally located neighborhood of Seneca Gardens is a suburb of Louisville, Kentucky. The neighborhood’s beauty can be attributed, in part, to the neighborhood arboretum project, which strives to maintain a plethora of trees, in addition to its grand oaks and maples.
Seneca Gardens is a sixth-class city that is self-governed with its own mayor and commissioners. It is located north of Strathmoor Village, between Highlands Douglass and Seneca Park. With the exception of the Keneseth Israel Synagogue, the entire area is zoned residential.
The land here was once a popular hunting ground for the local Native American Indian tribes. Residents often discover buried remnants of the past in arrowheads, pottery and other artifacts.
Several historic homes from the 1800s still stand today, and it is rumored that some of the original landowners were involved in the Underground Railroad. Development truly began here in 1922. Most homes were built in the 1930s and 40s, in primarily Traditional and Colonial styles.
Excellent dining and shopping options abound, and the excitement of downtown Louisville is just minutes away. The nearby Douglas Loop district, in particular, has several grocery stores and drug stores, a bank, restaurants, bakeries and a Sears department store.
Beautiful Seneca Park, named for the famous Native American tribe, is a popular recreational spot for residents. Olmstead Brothers, the original designer of the Louisville park system, designed the park. It is over 500 acres and features playgrounds, walking and biking trails, athletic fields, and even horseback riding trails. Golfing enthusiasts like to hit the links at the park’s championship 18-hole golf course.
