The Jefferson Park Avenue neighborhood (JPA) is a 172.8-acre neighborhood in southwest Charlottesville.


The JPA neighborhood is bounded by Stadium Road and the University of Virginia’s Central Grounds to the north, City limits to the west, and Norfolk Southern Railroad to the south and east.[1]


Because of the neighborhood's close proximity to the University, it has a high percentage of properties which are student rentals (94%).[1] This high student rental ratio has been possible due to the neighborhood's extensive R-3 zoning (multi-family).[1]


Notable sites include the University's South Lawn Project and Medical Center, Dirty Nelly's Pub, Thai 99 and Guadalajara restaurants, and the Fontaine Research Park.
