Looking to rent a 1 bed-1/1.5 bath apartment in Ballantyne or Dilworth. Max budget is around 1500$. Two adults and a toddler. Good PreK at walking distance is prime priority. Gym, parking and safe community are others. Please advise.

There are apartments on Park Road , just south of Dilworth that fit your criteria. There is a YWCA and a daycare within walking distance of the second complex on the right at Park Slope condominiums. There is a complex of townhomes to the left of the Shell at Park and Scott Avenue. The area of town is relatively safe , there is walkability which increases to the north , with Freedom Park and a lengthy greenway within walking distance as well. Shops and eateries can be found in Park Road Shopping Center , which is a tad further south , or along East Boulevard to the north. The area is not too car dependent , you must contend with the narrow sidewalks , and traffic regularly travels at least 10 above the posted limit. You can also park at PRSC and explore those shops , et al. , or traverse Woodlawn and peruse Park Towne Village.

In Ballantyne , you can still remain within budget , but you will need a car. If I'm not mistaken , there are 4 widely spaced bus routes that sporadically serve Ballantyne , 3 of which run at irregular times of the day. It is technically safer , however the caveat would be having to drive everywhere , only being able to walk the McMullen Creek Greenway , or your immediate neighbourhood. The area consists mostly of single family detached housing , with some townhomes , condominiums , and apartments intermixed , but decidedly suburban. Downtown is distant , and traffic on the freeway out there is incongruous with existing infrastructure.
