"Gateway To Your Heart"

This little niche may not seem like a big deal, but it is perfectly situated between Downtown Jacksonville and the St. John’s Town Center and within 10 miles from the Beach!

This tiny strip of this extensive Southside, Jacksonville road is the quietest. Not is the hospital less than a mile away, it’s within a bike ride to fun restaurants, movie theater, nightlife and the neighborhood grocery store!

With the main housing as condos, this neighborhood is quiet. Residents include young couples and retirees, students attending FSCJ or UNF and some families.

Another advantage of this area is the corporate park located within 2 miles. This means the traffic on the weekends if very minimal; on the other hand traffic during the week can be a pain between 7:30-8:30 am (rush hour for this side of town). Even though JTB (highway) is located right next to some of the neighborhoods, the noise is not intrusive.

"Nice street for commuters or familys."

This street is a two lane either directon road that cuts its way through trees and corporations. Gate prkwy is home to mostly people commuting to work but also has many apartments nestled along its sides. Gate prkwy is also a quick way to get to the town center mall from Southside Blvd.

"Very nice area"

Gate Parkway is a very nice are. In fact, it is where I would like to move. The apartments, shopping, and restaurants are all top of the line. Obviously that means that rent is not cheap, but it is worth it! The new St. John’s Town Center is located just off Gate. This outdoor mall is AMAZING!

"Absolutly great area"

I don't live off of Gate Parkway directly but I have lived off of a street right next to it for nearly two years now. It is a great area. The rent can get a little pricey but it is well worth it to live in such a great area. About every community that is off of this street is great to live in. The shopping and restaurants are amazing. People in their 20s-30s should definetly look into living here.
