Val Verde Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Val Verde is an upscale single-family development in northwest Oklahoma City. Located between MacArthur Boulevard and Meridian Avenue along 122nd Street, the neighborhood is part of the prestigious housing which includes expensive neighborhoods like Quail Creek and Gaillardia, where many CEOs and NBA players reside.
There are two sections of Val Verde that are not directly connected to each other because they are separated by a wooded greenbelt. Each section has access from both 122nd Street and Meridian Avenue, for easy navigation around Oklahoma City. By taking Meridian, Val Verde residents can access Memorial Road or the Kilpatrick Turnpike that lead into the Quail Springs shopping and dining area. 122nd Street has an on-ramp to the Lake Hefner Parkway just over a mile from Val Verde for a quick commute downtown to work or play. The newest library in the excellent Metropolitan Library System will open soon right across the street from Val Verde.
The Val Verde area is rich with recreational opportunities. Bordering Val Verde on the north is Martin Park Nature Center. This 144-acre park is a preserved wilderness, where visitors can see varieties of animals from butterflies to foxes. There are more than three miles of gently sloping hiking trails through the woods and meadows of the park. The Greens, Gaillardia, and Quail Creek Golf and Country Clubs are all within two miles of Val Verde. Val Verde is also near all the activities at Lake Hefner. The lake offers gentle running and biking trails, sailing, wind surfing, and grassy parks perfect for flying kites. Restaurants at the East Wharf are perfect places for a sunset dinner overlooking the lake and lighthouse.
Those looking for a beautiful upscale neighborhood well connected to all the recreation and culture of Oklahoma City will find Val Verde a great option.
