The Wolf Creek neighborhood is located just north of West Third Street near the Wright-Dunbar Historic Village. It extends west toward James H. McGee Boulevard and has the Wolf Creek as its northern border, from which the neighborhood gets its name.

Homes in Wolf Creek are generally two-story Victorian and Craftsman style homes built during the early 1900s, plus some modern infill housing.

Wolf Creek is conveniently located near Downtown Dayton and the Wright Dunbar Historic District, which includes the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Park, retail shops, and W. Social Tap & Table food hall. Wolf Creek is uniquely positioned to enjoy both natural and urban amenities of the city.

Wolf Creek Recreational Trail is located along the neighborhood’s northern edge, connecting to the Great Miami River and beyond. Additional restaurants and retail locations are under development only blocks away, and Downtown Dayton is just across the Third Street bridge.
