Canterbury Green Apartments - On The Bike Path
Big Enough to be Called a Town!
Yes, I mentioned this before, but think about it again. Canterbury has almost 5,000 people living in multiple dwellings spread over many acres, so itís hard to think of it as what most people would call an ďapartment complex.Ē And itís inside the city limits. Since the bike path was extended to run along the south edge of this property, I figured it was time to take photos of the place and post them here. Anyone planning to move to Fort Wayne might be intrigued by an unusual and attractive property like this, especially if they wanted to attend IPFW, a short walk or bike ride south. Beyond that, if youíre an avid cyclist, how could you not be tempted to live so close to the cityís network of trails. And if you like to kayak, youíre in luck. You have the river close by -- so close that, depending where you live, you might be able to drag your kayak from your apartment to the river and drop it in.
I took this picture of the river just before sundown.
Look at this scene. Doesnít it look like a place you might see when youíre on vacation?
This is literally beside Canterbury housing on Abbey Drive.
I snapped that picture as I stood just to the left of the street sign in this next photo:.
When you look to the right of this sign, the view down the road is seen in the next picture.
Canterbury has itís own 18-hole championship golf course, part of which you see in this photo, and also an 18-hole mini golf course - tennis courts - racquetball courts - sand volleyball - four swimming pools, a fitness center, tanning salon and sauna.
Another part of the golf course.
Does this look like a place youíd like to live? No, all units are not located next to water.

Interestingly, the cabin where John Chapman (known as Johnny Appleseed) lived at the time of his death was on the property where Canterbury Green is now located.
