Lake Daniel Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Lake Daniel is a rarity: an urban community that is immersed in nature. Tidy, post-World War II houses line Lake Daniel’s streets and complement the neighborhood’s park, lake and greenway. The beautifully landscaped lake sits on the southeast side of the neighborhood. Daniel Park wraps around the south end of the neighborhood and contains a playground, tennis courts, exercise stations and basketball courts. The Lake Daniel Greenway, two miles of paved trail, cuts through the park.
The neighborhood is named after Garland Daniel, who designed Lake Daniel in the 1920s and advertised it as “Close to the Heart of Nature and to Greensboro.” That slogan holds true today. The neighborhood was developed in two phases. The curving streets of the northeast section were built out in the 1920s and 1930s, and the south and west parts were developed on a grid pattern between 1940 and 1970. Only seven houses in Lake Daniel were built after 1970. About half of the neighborhood’s houses are built in the Minimal Traditional style, and other represented styles include Ranch, Cape Cod, Foursquare, Period Cottage and Tudor Revival.
Unlike most mid-century neighborhoods, Lake Daniel has two one-story apartment complexes. The brick buildings, which are constructed around landscaped courts, were built in 1941.
Lake Daniel encompasses ZIP code 27408, and it is bordered by Seminole Drive on the east, Westover Terrace on the west, Whilden Place on the north and Benjamin Parkway on the south.
Downtown Greensboro and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro are a short drive from Lake Daniel, as are three hospitals and many public parks. The Friendly Center, one of Greensboro’s top shopping destinations, is also close by.
