Crestwood

The Crestwood community is divided by Crestwood Boulevard, creating both Crestwood North and Crestwood South neighborhoods.

Crestwood North dates back to the early 1900s, although most of the neighborhood was developed in the late 1940s. Crestwood South was developed in the early 1950s, a typical post-World War II neighborhood full of baby boomers.

The two neighborhoods come together at two community meeting places: Crestwood Park, fully renovated in 2012 and featuring walking trails, playground, pavilion, tennis courts, and athletic field, and Crestwood Plaza, a bustling shopping center boasting retail shops, dining, coffee, and a variety of specialty service providers.
