An historic downtown neighborhood association dedicated to
preserving our quality of life

 
Welcome to our Neighborhood!

Woodland Drives is an historic in-town neighborhood almost in the shadow of Florida’s capitol. Comprised of about 450 homes, it is one of Tallahassee’s first platted neighborhoods, with an eclectic mix of single-family homes and townhouses, ranging from 70+ years old to brand new. Many of our residents have lived in the neighborhood for generations--indeed, Woodland Drives boasts succeeding generations living in the same home!

We’re fortunate to enjoy many greenspaces dotting the area which provide a haven for wildlife and appreciation from nature enthusiasts. The area is rich with history as well. Archeologists have unearthed evidence of religious missions of the 1600s in and around our neighborhood, and found remnants of explorer Hernando de Soto’s winter encampment of 1539.

Much of our neighborhood is part of the Myers Park Historic District, comprised of 362 acres with 229 parcels of land.

Our neighborhood association is strong and provides many functions to strengthen the neighbor bond that is so important in today’s hectic world.


The Survey Says...

The results are in! FSU's Community Development class, headed up by Dr. Andrew Aurand of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, did a wonderful job of surveying neighbors and reporting the results. To view highlights of the survey and the actual reports of the survey, click here.


Lafayette Street

Lafayette Street, our northern boundary, provides our neighborhood with a smorgasbord of ethnic cuisines, friendly pubs, eclectic shopping choices, dynamic businesses, an art gallery and even a nightclub. We’d like to partner with the businesses and merchants to make Lafayette Street even more vibrant.
