Girvin Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Nestled between well-known beaches to the east and Jacksonville to the west, residents in the suburban community of Girvin enjoy the best of both worlds. A five-mile trip down Atlantic Boulevard leads to Atlantic Beach. Fifteen miles in the other direction takes drivers into the heart of downtown Jacksonville. And it’s just a few miles north to historic Fort George Island.
Children in Girvin have access to both public and private schools, including Abess Park Elementary School, La Petite Academy, Eunice Christian School, and Landmark Middle School. Girvin residents don’t have to drive far to worship, as more than four churches are located along a short stretch of Girvin Road. The nearest college is Southeastern Theological.
Five miles east of Girvin Road is the Kernan Village Retail Center, a small shopping area anchored by a WalMart Supercenter. A restaurant district on the south border of Girvin includes dozens of eateries, both of local origin and those that are part of a larger chain.
For fun, residents can play nine holes or launch a boat at Queen’s Harbour Country Club, located in the center of the Girvin community. Girvin is ideally situated for water sports, as multiple small creeks and tributaries from northern Chicopit Bay lead into the region. Pilots enjoy close access to Craig Municipal Airport. At Ed Austin Regional Park, youth and adults alike skateboard and play Frisbee golf.
Other outdoor amenities include the densely wooded Lone Star Park, and Jacksonville Arboretum and Gardens. Located seven miles from Girvin, the arboretum boasts 120 acres of native flora and fauna.
