Cypress Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Cypress Creek is a neighborhood in Pensacola, Florida, within the 32506 zip code. Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park borders the community on three sides, and Bauer Road creates the remaining boundary on the west. This is a quiet, rather rural area offering flat terrain and wide streets.
Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park got its name from the tar kilns that were once prevalent in this area. The pine tar from the southern yellow pine trees was an important product to the maritime industry. Today, the preserve features some rare plants, including the carnivorous sweet pitcher plant. A boardwalk allows visitors to view these rare plants along with the wildlife that makes its home in the area. The park also offers hiking trails, kayaking opportunities, and picnic areas.
Hellen Caro Elementary, Jim C. Bailey Middle, and Escambia High School are all high-performing schools located within an easy drive of home.
Less than a three-mile drive away is the Perdido Bay Golf Club. This club’s 18-hole championship course was part of the PGA tour for 10 years. The practice facilities here include a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and practice bunkers. Baars Field is another outdoor attraction within three miles of Cypress Creek, which offers baseball, softball, and T-ball fields. Batting cages and a playground are also provided. Doug Ford Park is located close to the golf club and offers 18 protected acres, as well as a picnic pavilion and a path that overlooks Perdido Bay.
Where Sorrento Road meets the Gulf Beach Highway, there are grocery stores, services, and restaurants for neighborhood residents to enjoy. Big Lagoon State Park is a popular place for local residents to spend the day. Swimming, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and hiking are among the activities people find most appealing here.
