I am a single mom with a 3 year old relocating (after a year away) to Tampa for work at USF. I was living in Hyde Park last year, but now I am thinking it might be nicer for my son and I to live in a place like Hunter's Green, with hiking trails, a playground, a pool, etc. (basically a built-in community which hopefully will keep us from feeling too isolated).

But the school I'd like to have my son in is in Seminole Heights, and many of the people I know live in S. Tampa or in Seminole Heights.

So, can you recommend a place to live that's not too far from Seminole Heights or S. Tampa, but that still might have the community-like atmosphere of a place in New Tampa?

This is to rent, by the way.

Sorry I don't have an answer for you as we're looking to relocate to the Tampa Bay area ourselves, but I'm just wondering why you're avoiding New Tampa? Isn't New Tampa a nice area?

It's nice, but the traffic between New Tampa and the campus can be knarly. Also, I just wanted to avoid living in post-suburbia if I could help it. But now I think I'm going to NT

You are confusing me. You mentioned you don't want New Tampa area, but are looking at Hunters Green in New Tampa? I don't know about the rentals in Hunters Green, but here in Tampa Palms, there are some rental apartments (Compton Dr) that is walking distance to a playground and the YMCA is across the street. They also have a pool. There are some low income housing in there too. It is a quick drive to I-75 and if you take the back roads (Compton Dr) you don't have any traffic getting to I-75.

Hey there!

We are currtenly renting in the Diamond hill community and we LOVE IT! It has everything you are looking for and we highly recomend it! Diamond Hill is located in Valrico, FL and is a gold course community. You should check it out and see if it is not to far from where you will be working. Good luck!

Diamond Hill is a housing community on a golf course. The OP was asking for apartment communities. As far as I know, I have only seen a few houses for rent in Diamond Hill. Most of the owners live there rather then rent it out.

These are some of the stranger statements I've seen on this forum.
Really?
You lived in hyde park and decided it would be better to move to new tampa???
And you want to send your kid to seminole heights for school?

Not trying to criticize....I understand you have your reasons (commute, firends, etc). But it just struck me as funny.

We have a 3 year old and I work at USF. We recently moved from New Tampa, which was horrible for all of us, to Palma Ceia. We thought about seminole heights but quickly nixed it due to schools. Couldn't be happier with out current situation.

Good luck with your decision.
