Woodrail Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Columbia, Missouri, area is known for providing its temporary student-residents with a hometown feel. This quintessential college town has both small-town amenities and big-city attractions. The Woodrail neighborhood, located off Forum Boulevard near West Nifong Boulevard, is a luxurious community with lush trees that is adjacent to Columbia Country Club.
The Twin Lakes Recreation Area on Chapel Hill Road offers more than 64 acres for outdoor exploration. A walking trail and dog park are also key highlights. The dog park features a leash-free area where dogs are allowed to play from March to November. Its biggest draw is Little Mates Cove, a municipal water park with sprinklers, water cannons, waterfalls, a pool, and water slides. Residents pay a reduced fee at the water park, which can be reserved for birthday parties and other celebrations. A 26-acre lake is also available for resident use throughout the year. It features a 6.5-acre swimming area with a sand beach called Pirates’ Landing, a dock, and water slides along the shore. The Twin Lakes Recreation area borders the Hinkson Woods Conservation Area, which is popular for hiking, hunting, and fishing.
Residents interested in arts and culture head to the nearby Missouri Theater Center for the Arts, which provides a great deal of quality entertainment. It is the artistic home of chorale leagues, symphony players, opera performers, and more, and is generally the first stop for these types of performers in mid-Missouri. It’s home base for the Missouri Symphony Society, and sponsors youth chamber orchestra groups.
Woodrail residents are never short on family-friendly activities, with the area’s strong cultural center and opulent recreational spots.
