Forest Park is a neighborhood of pride on the City's Southside. Several new homes recently completed, along with several others under construction or on the drawing board, are drawing new attention to this area. The neighborhood also features great homes, from large split-levels to ranch-style homes and others, for families and first-time homebuyers alike. Many families in Forest Park are long-time residents, providing a great level of stability, and its neighborhood association is one of the most active in the City.
The C.C. Woodson Community Center is within easy walking distance for most Forest Park residents, providing children and adults alike a great place for exercise, recreation, swimming in the summertime and rooms for clubs and community meetings. The neighborhood also abuts Duncan Park.
