Foxcroft And Glen Arbor Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The sprawling, brick ranch homes, stately two-stories, and elegant contemporaries give Foxcroft and Glen Arbor the feeling of country estates. Sidewalks invite a stroll through many blocks. West Red Bridge Road, Wornall Road, 114th Terrace, and State Line Road form the boundaries.
It isn’t surprising that Hallbrook Country Club sits just west of the neighborhood, along State Line Road.
Just across Wornall Road are several important recreational sites – The Blue River and Minor Park. Blue River has 12 miles of trails along the riverbanks where wagon trains once crossed. In Minor Park, the ruts left by a half-century’s passage of these trains can still be seen, and a marker was erected in 1909. Minor Park is also home to one of Kansas City’s favorite public golf courses. There are 12 tennis courts here. Mid-Continent Library joins Minor Park.
Other recreation areas are a short drive east. These include the 2,600-acre James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area, 720-acre Blue Springs Lake, and 970-acre Lake Jacomo. Kemper Outdoor Education Center is at Lake Jacomo.
There are many institutions of higher education nearby. The largest is UMKC, with 14,000 students. The closest is across the street, prestigious Avila University. There are several two-year colleges close by as well.
For shopping, entertainment, dining, museums, and art galleries, the areas around Foxcroft and Glen Arbor are unsurpassed in number and variety. 18th and Vine, the historic jazz district, and the Power and Light District are top spots. Historic Country Club Plaza and Westport Plaza offer shopping and entertainment, close to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. With a symphony, ballet, theater, and lyric opera, Kansas City cultural events are everywhere.
Two professional sports teams, the Royals and the Chiefs, play in stadiums to the northeast.
