Southside is good for those who like a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are quite tranquil - although there are still several noisier sections, especially around Jack Nicklaus Freeway, Outerbelt or one of the railway lines. It is sometimes challenging to reach parks from the majority of locations in the neighborhood since they aren't well-distributed. Despite that, there are a few parks nearby for residents to relax in.
The average year of construction for buildings in Southside is 1982. In this part of Columbus, the majority of buildings are single detached homes, while the remainder are mainly mobile homes. Roughly two thirds of the dwellings in the neighborhood are occupied by home owners and one third are rented. This neighborhood also has quite a good selection of unit sizes; houses range from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
