Encompassing the large collection of neighborhoods generally south of I-496, Lansing’s Southside is a big area with numerous commercial strips running north and south along Cedar, MLK and Pennsylvania streets. In addition to its strong residential focus, which shines through in places like the long-stable Colonial Village, the area also supports many beautiful parks and amenities such as Potter Park Zoo. The South Lansing commercial areas near Edgewood Blvd. mark the city’s southern boundary.
