The Third Ward Neighborhood is a great place to live for three main reasons: Convenience, Community and History. In the Third Ward, you know your neighbors and they know you. Building community is a way of life here, whether borrowing eggs for a recipe, shoveling an elderly neighbor’s sidewalk after a snowstorm, or participating in one of the many block parties and neighborhood gatherings. Nestled between the Chippewa River and Putnam Park State District and South Barstow District.
