Mayview Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The neighborhood of Mayview is situated less than a quarter mile from Northwest Grand Boulevard, and about a half mile from Lake Hefner Parkway.
This puts the community less than a half mile from Lake Hefner Park and Pow Park, around a mile from Stars and Stripes Park, and Lake Hefner is intermediate in distance. The parks give residents and visitors a place to relax in the shade of large, well-established trees, and the lake is a major landmark.
Lake Hefner was built in 1947, and it covers about 2500 acres. Boating is allowed in the lake, and there is access for sailboats. Sailboat races are yearly events. This is also a great place for freshwater fishing by boat, from the shore, or on one of many fishing docks. There are even covered and heated fishing docks on Lake Hefner for the fishing enthusiast. There are paved jogging and walking trails here. Sightseeing and wildlife photography opportunities abound.
For golfers, Mayview is about a mile from Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club. This is a place for a good workout, with eight tennis courts, a large swimming pool and a fitness center. The golf course is well maintained, and it is a model of a great course, with beautiful greens and stately trees.
There are also several other parks within a few miles of Mayview, which means that this is a place that isn’t lacking in recreation and playgrounds.
Many large trees grow here, providing shade for the the community, and they are spaced out enough that there isn’t a feeling of being confined. Wildlife isn’t uncommon, since the lake is so close to the neighborhood.
