Delridge Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Delridge is a residential community located across the water from the Seattle Industrial District. Close proximity to the industrial hub of Seattle means that many of the area jobs are related to the port or services provided to the port. For the residents of Delridge, the sights, smells, and sounds of the port may seem far away at times.
Delridge is one of the few communities surrounded by nature in a sea of big industry. This makes Delridge a prime neighborhood, close to the many jobs of the area while still in a green, natural setting.
One of the best aspects of the Delridge neighborhood is that it is almost completely surrounded by recreation. In almost every direction is some sort of a park, playground, or waterway. Having this much area recreation makes Delridge incredibly convenient for the more active area residents.
On the north side of Delridge is one of the most popular recreation destinations in the area, The West Seattle Recreation Center. This area is home to one of the more popular area golf courses, the West Seattle Golf Course. The golf course is a somewhat compact course that provides a good game for all experience levels. The course even offers a pro shop where knowledgeable golf pros can help players of any experience level to better their game. West Seattle Stadium — on the north side of the recreation center — hosts many area track and field events. It is also a common place for walkers and runners to come out for exercise on the large track.
Across the street, on 26th Avenue, is Delridge Playfield. The playfield offers other activities that complement what is offered at the West Seattle Recreation Center. The playfield has multiple tennis courts and a large playground that is popular with younger children.
