Boundaries

Nearly triangular in shape, the northeastern corner is the intersection of the C&O east-west railroad tracks and Ridge Street. From this point, the southeastern border is Ridge and 5th Street Extended until it meets Rock Creek at the neighborhood's southernmost point. Rock Creek is the southwestern boundary, back to the northwestern corner at the C&O tracks, which form the northern boundary. There is a Fifeville Neighborhood Association.

Amentities

The neighborhood contains Tonsler Park, Forest Hills Park, and Fifeville Park.

Education

Fifeville is home to Buford Middle School as well as the Smith Aquatic & Fitness Center.

Transportation

Cherry Avenue is the main corridor, running approximately east-west.

The railroad tracks to the north create a significant barrier to pedestrians between the neighborhood and UVa just across these tracks[1].

Development

A Cherry Avenue redevelopment plan was passed in 2005, and the Grove Square development is the first site plan approved to take advantage of the rezoning[2]

Parts of the neighborhood are part of the Fifeville-Castle Hill Historic District.
