Greenfield Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Greenfield neighborhood is poised between one of the bends in the Ohio River in the 15207 zip-code area of Pittsburgh. The rich waterway continues to spawn life across the delta as it bathes this neighborhood in lush trees and vegetation. Once the scene for epic colonial battles, now there is competition for space as the city’s neighborhoods reclaim post-industrial properties to create a relaxing oasis of greenery.
The northern border of this neighborhood follows the winding curve of the Penn-Lincoln Parkway, as Beachwood Avenue reaches in and helps the eastern line meet Salina Street. Hazlewood Avenue runs halfway across the southern line before Bigelow Street steps closes off the remaining southern front as well as the west side.
To the north of the Greenfield neighborhood is the Schenley Sportplex, an oval track that was once used for amateur horse racing. It has since been converted into an all-weather running track, flanked by ten-plus tennis courts, and filled in with a soccer field. To the east is the largest municipal park in Pennsylvania, Frick Park. Covering over five-hundred acres, the original land seed of 150 acres was donated in 1919.
To the south is the wet and wild Sandcastle Water Park, open since 1989. The park rests on the south bank of the Monongahela River. It has fourteen water slides, pools for the adults, and boasts the world’s biggest hot tub. To the west of the neighborhood is the South Hills Country Club with an 18-hole, 6,473-yard course at a par 71; the club opened in 1920.
The neighborhood is a pedestrian-friendly area as sidewalks circle each block, and it is well maintained. With on-street parking, the slender roadways bring vehicles and bicycles together along the same streets. The neighborhood is void of bike lanes, but cyclists merge with traffic in an easy give and take.
