Countryside Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Countryside is a Kansas City neighborhood. Oak Street borders the eastern edge of this Missouri neighborhood, heading south and jogging west on East 56th Street to Brookside Boulevard. This meets West 57th Street to form the southern boundary, turning north on Wornall Road on its western side to hem up these boundaries along West 51st Terrace and West 52nd Street at Countryside’s northern edge.
This neighborhood is pleasant and residential, with plenty of trees to keep it green. Casual dining and other attractions are scattered throughout the vicinity. Bus stops are readily accessible on the main roads of Countryside.
Schools serve a variety of needs, though just one school is public. Bryant Elementary School serves the public sector. Visitation School, not far from Visitation Church and located just outside the boundaries of northern Countryside, serves students in kindergarten through eighth grade. From there, girls can attend the 20-acre campus of Saint Teresa’s Academy in southern Countryside.
One outstanding example of the fine arts is the Kansas City Chorale. This Grammy Award-winning professional vocal ensemble consists of 12 men and 12 women, performing in Countryside and also extending their audience to an international level.
At the western border of this neighborhood is Loose Park. Named after philanthropist Jacob L. Loose, its 75 acres are the historic location of the Battle of Westport between Union and Confederate forces. Today, gardens, walkways, and places to play grace the land. Visitors enjoy a 1.5-acre garden with 4,000 roses representing more than 150 varieties. The Stanley R. McLane Arboretum is also in this park. Two and a half miles of walking trails, tennis courts, a spray park, a playground, and other amenities make this park both fun and relaxing.
