Welcome to Bloomington, IN
Bloomington Cohousing is located on 2 1/2 acres deep in the heart of Bloomington, Indiana. The property is situated just north of the Southeast YMCA and is bordered by a forested nature preserve, two playgrounds and open green space, and a well-established neighborhood. Three sides of the property are lined with trees, creating a restful feeling while still providing easy access to recreation and amenities.
Bloomington Cohousing is a 5-10 minute walk from a large community garden, wooded city park, community orchard, YMCA, sports complex, daycares, and urban biking/hiking trails. The nearest grocery store and shopping complex is a six-minute drive away. You can reach historic downtown Bloomington (including shops, restaurants, a library, and music/theatre venues) in an eight-minute drive.
Bloomington has the charm of a small town with the activities, entertainment, diversity, and opportunities of a larger city. The city is actively recruiting remote workers, and the tech community is active and growing. Residents enjoy farmer’s markets, local bakeries, wineries, breweries, and cideries, and a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. Indiana University hosts a world-class opera theatre, touring Broadway shows, Big Ten athletic events, famous lecture series, and seasonal music performances. Bloomington is home to the international world music festival Lotus Fest, the Limestone Comedy Festival, and the Little 500 IU bicycle race. If you enjoy contra-dancing, choral singing, hackerspaces, bird-watching, running, kickball, ultimate Frisbee, symphonic band, glass-blowing, bike building, dog parks, or book sales - then there is a club or organization for you! The area also includes three lakes, two state forests, and three nearby state parks, including the popular Brown County State Park and art colonies in nearby Nashville, IN. Comprehensive healthcare options are available, and IU Health is currently building a teaching hospital, scheduled to open in late 2021. The population is estimated to be 85,755 (as of 2019).
