Conveniently located minutes from the Notre Dame Campus and downtown South Bend, it offers quick access to all of the cultural and entertainment venues the city has to offer. From fine dining and café’s, to movies and live theater, residents are just ten minutes away!
The St. Joseph River winds along our northeastern border. It has been a desirable residential area since it was first developed, well over 100 years ago. With scenic views and historic homes it is a major attraction of the Near Northwest. Riverside Trail offers joggers and walkers panoramic views and a chance to sit and enjoy the scenery.
