Buena Vista Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Lush greenery in an urban setting sums up Nashville’s Buena Vista Heights neighborhood. The historic district on the edge of the hip enclave of Germantown, Buena Vista Heights sits nestled between downtown Nashville and the Metro Center business district. Though it is located in the city’s center, the recreationally inclined will enjoy easy access to Ted Rhodes Park and Buena Vista Park. Public access baseball fields, soccer fields and a golf course are within a short drive or walking distance.
The feature of Ted Rhodes Park is the 18-hole public golf course nearby. The park itself offers tennis and basketball courts, as well as fields suitable for soccer or football. Buena Vista Park is south of Buena Vista Heights. Its best feature is the manicured fields that are regularly used for soccer games on the weekends. It also has a playground for kids and a community center building.
Quick eateries like Cheeseburger Charley’s and McDonald’s are nearby, and residents have the option of driving further into Midtown to sample a wide variety of ethnic delicacies and fresh produce at the farmers’ market.
The area is education-friendly, with Hull Jackson Montessori Magnet School, John Early Paieda School and Z. Alexander Looby Public Library nearby. This library is named in memorial of one of Nashville’s heroes of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.
For older students, Buena Vista Heights is equidistant from both campuses of Tennessee State University and Watkins College of Art and its nationally renowned film school.
One of the neighborhood’s most interesting landmarks is the Metropolitan Interdenominational Church. The institution has been active in addressing the needs of many of Nashville’s neediest citizens and is at the forefront of educating all on the importance of proper health care.
