Carter Park's most notable feature is of course, Carter Park; a neighborhood park for the entire community. There are varied Industrial uses in the west part of the neighborhood, just west of Kauffman Ave. The housing styles include a number of craftsman-style bungalows and other types of the early to mid 1900's. There is also more recent contemporary housing that settles nicely to compliment the area.
The Carter Park neighborhood is also home to many numerous larger trees, which help give the neighborhood a pedestrian-friendly quality, charm and feel. Residents have great access to local shops, small businesses, services and grocery stores.
