Nestled near several other scenic subdivisions and picturesque parks, Midway West is a primarily residential community. It’s about ten minutes west of Columbia, Missouri, and is part of the Columbia Metropolitan Area.
Several nearby parks provide outdoors enthusiasts with seemingly endless opportunities for recreation and exploration. Cosmo Park, which is just four miles to the east, is formally known as the Columbia Cosmopolitan Recreation Area. It spans 533 acres, and offers sports fields, a clubhouse, the Steinberg Playground, a mountain bike trail, a roller hockey rink, the Bear Creek Nature Area, and the Cosmo Nature Trail.
Midway West is an almost perfect place for college students to call home as well, because it is near many highly-rated universities. The renowned University of Missouri is just a short drive to the southeast. Central Methodist University is to the northwest, while Central Christian College of the Bible is to the north. Lincoln University and the Missouri Valley College School of Nursing and Health Sciences are also nearby.
Some residents are members of the Columbia Country Club. The club is a few miles to the east and features a 6,436-yard, par-71 professional golf course. It also features a putting green, a driving range, an aquatic center with a 25-yard pool, an upscale clubhouse, and special event facilities. The Perche Creek Golf Club, the L.A. Nickell Golf Course, and the Country Club of Missouri also serve the golfing needs of the community.
