Encircled by tall rows of graceful eucalyptus trees, the Northwood
community of Irvine
sits at the northernmost edge of the city, near the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. Like the rest of Irvine, Northwood is extremely family-friendly, with bike paths and more than a dozen parks spread throughout the neighborhood. Northwood Community Park's amenities include courts for tennis, racquetball, and basketball.
Northwood also provides resort-style pools and a 24-hour fitness
club available to residents, most of whom live in affordably priced single-family homes
located on large lots. Those looking for houses for rent in Northwood also appreciate Irvine's excellent school system, which contains many nationally-ranked and honored schools.
