Fairfield Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Fairfield Park neighborhood, located in the port city of Pensacola, Florida, is framed by tall pines and accented by palm trees, giving the area a park-like feeling. Fairfield Park is bordered by West Fairfield Drive and Usher Circle, and is in zip code 32506.
Despite its suburban locale, the neighborhood is close to everyday conveniences. Restaurants are within walking distance, and a Publix Supermarket is a short drive along Mobile Highway. A Wal-Mart is also nearby. The community’s proximity to North Blue Angel Parkway and other thoroughfares provides residents with an easy commute to all the events and attractions of Pensacola.
Fewer than 30 minutes away by car, the emerald waters and white sand beaches of the Gulf are popular when residents seek recreation. Several parks provide quieter beaches for fishing and swimming. The area of Pensacola Beach near the fishing pier offers a number of restaurants and shops; it’s also the place to enjoy free concerts on weekend nights throughout the summer.
The city’s busy event and festival schedule offers something for almost any interest almost weekly. Holiday events include the week-long Mardi Gras festivities, the Fourth of July celebration with Blue Angels Air Show, and the Pelican Drop on New Year’s Eve. Many festivals celebrate the varied musical interests of Pensacola residents, including reggae, blues and jazz. A huge art festival draws artists and visitors from around the southeast.
The city’s numerous historic sites are another source of entertainment and education. Many of these can be found at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, including the Pensacola Lighthouse, which dates to 1859.
Those with children may enjoy a family outing to Sam’s Fun and Surf City, which has an amusement and water park and is very near Fairfield Park. Another convenient family site is Fast Eddie’s, where the family can enjoy miniature golf, racetracks, a game room and water balloon battles.
