Scott Park is the neighborhood bounded by Dorr Street, the Conrail railroad tracks, Byrne Road, Hill Avenue, Richards Road, the Toledo City Limits, and Secor Road. The neighborhood is named after the Scott Park, which is now home to The University of Toledo Community and Technical College. The University of Toledo Bancroft Campus is also adjacent to the Scott Park neighborhood.

Homes in Scott Park vary greatly in style. Older 1920s styles like Cape Cod, Neo-Colonial, Arts and Crafts, and Tudor are found in the eastern portion of the neighborhood on moderately sized lots on a grid street system, while newer constructions of Ranch, Neo-colonial, and Split-Level design sit on large lots lining curvilinear streets in the western portion. Some of these newer constructions were built after 1989.

Scott Park’s close proximity to both campuses of The University of Toledo offers advantages in leisure that many other neighborhoods do not enjoy. Planetarium shows, sporting events, lectures, movies, concerts, and political visits are just some of The University of Toledo’s regular activities. The Scott Park Campus is home to the Scott Park Softball Complex as well as a large park. Winterfield Park, on the western edge of Scott Park, features a baseball diamond and tennis court. The Inverness Country Club is also located just beyond Scott Park’s western border.

Scott Park has many commercial areas nearby. Westgate Shopping Center is accessible through a short drive north on Secor Road. The Glendale Shopping Center is just to the south on Byrne Road. The Byrne-Hill Plaza is located on the corner of Byrne Road and Hill Avenue, and Dorr Street contains a small commercial corridor.

Transportation is easy for Scott Park residents. Dorr Street provides access to the downtown, and links together Secor Road, a major West Toledo road, with Byrne Road, a major South Toledo road. Secor Road provides access to Interstate 475 to the north, while Byrne Road heads south to Maumee. Hill Avenue is an east-west corridor for the neighborhood that connects to Reynolds road, a major commercial corridor. Westwood-Douglas Road also provides a north-south channel for local traffic.

Homes in Scott Park, based on 1990 census data, average from $25,000 to $85,000 in price, and have an owner occupancy rate of 55%. Over 10,000 people live in Scott Park, and their average annual household income, based on 1990 census data, is around $16,000.
