Woodland Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Woodland Park neighborhood came into existence in the early years of the twentieth century as a group of residents went looking for a place to further climb the social ladder. This planned community has offered plenty of modern conveniences from the beginning. Wonderful old mansions sprinkled among smaller homes evoke the charm of their time period. Home styles include craftsman bungalows, stately Victorians, and Tudor mansions. Some mansions have been converted to commercial use, but some remain family homes. The neighborhood’s larger homes sit on half acre lots.
