A relic of old Florida, the charming Duckpond neighborhood is a popular destination for families and young professionals. Walking distance to downtown Gainesville and The Thomas Center, this neighborhood is a cultural hub proximal to all the latest activity. Architecturally speaking, this neighborhood features Colonial Historic Style Homes, sometimes converted into multiple apartments! The Duckpond neighborhood gets its namesake from Sweetwater Branch Creek, which yes, is home to many ducks, and flows through the center of the neighborhood. This is a friendly neighborhood where neighbors actually smile and wave at each other, children play outside, and people bike to and from downtown.
