Selwyn Park

Tucked into a small niche at the east end of Madison Park, Selwyn Park was actually built a decade earlier to house young families after WWII.  Today Selwyn Park remains a small, affordable, close-knit community with an active neighborhood association that hosts an annual block party. Enter the neighborhood at Park Road and Seneca Place and you’ll find pretty circuitous streets lined with tidy 1000-to-1200 square foot homes, perfect for first-time homeowners and those who want a shady-yard alternative to condo living without a big price tag.

The location can’t be beat. The Lynx Light Rail links residents to the SouthEnd Historic District, and a few stops further to the office buildings, sports arenas, culture and nightlife of Uptown.

But with so much at hand, you needn’t venture far to enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment. Anchored by Harris Teeter, the Park Selwyn Terrace shopping center is walkable from any point in the neighborhood. Dragon Fly Chinese, 1900 Mexican Grill, Penn Station Subs and Portofino’s Italian Restaurant round out the dining options and Lucky Lou’s Tavern provides a bit of nightlife. Residents are particularly fond of Mugs Coffee, an independent coffee shop that hosts board games, book and knitting groups and community meetings.

Travel a few blocks north on Park Road, make a right on Montford Drive and the serious nightlife begins. This walkable street party starts with bowling at Ten Park Lanes and continues through an amazingly varied assortment of dining and drinking spots (Angry AlesBrazwell’s Premium PubDuckworth’s Grill and TaphouseJeff’s Bucket Shop, Maverick Rock Taco, The Roasting Company and more).

Shopping options range from the homey ambiance of the 1950s-era Park Road Shopping Center to the upscale department stores and shops of the decidedly urbane SouthPark Mall.

But Selwyn Park offers more than shopping and dining. Recreational opportunities abound in the parks that border the neighborhood. The Marion Diehl Park property on Tyvola Road offers a full roster of recreational opportunities that will keep kids through seniors moving.  The expansive grounds include an outdoor track and playing field, a gym complex with a swimming pool and a senior center. Across Tyvola Road is the 72-acre Park Road Park with tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, baseball fields, walking trails and a picnic and playground area, all set around an 11-acre lake with pier. If that’s not enough, Freedom Park with its large pond, band shell, bike rentals and access to the Little Sugar Creek Greenway is only a short drive away.

With so much at hand this little development has matured into a great place to call home.
