Great Northwest Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Great Northwest is reminiscent of those perfect Hollywood neighborhoods with well kept landscaping, wooden fences, and lots and lots of brick. This neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas is about as close you can get to that ideal middle income community. Children play in the quiet streets, neighbors get together to socialize over burgers and hot dogs, and dogs are walked by owners willing to give friendly wave. Trampolines, swimming pools, and basketball hoops are all part of the scenery here.
Great Northwest is also part of a community improvement association. Everyone chips in a little bit of money to ensure better road maintenance, higher home standards, recreation opportunities, and of course higher home values.
One benefit of the community improvement association is the recreation center off of Timberwilde Street. This small center has four tennis courts, a basketball court, volleyball nets, a lap swimming pool, and several multiple purpose fields. The recreation center also hosts events that brings together community members and encourages neighborhood involvement.
Timberwilde Elementary School is across the street from the recreation center, which has a great playground for younger children. It is also where many of the young neighborhood children attend school.
Another major part of the community is the Great Northwest Library near the recreation center and elementary school. The library has a great selection of books and movies as well as access to computers and the internet. There are also a number of clubs that meet here such as the chess club, tween book club, and quilting club. Several regular activities also exist for younger children such as Toddler Time and the ABC Club that allow parents to interact with other parents as their children learn together.
