Duval Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The residential neighborhood of Duval is located on the west side of downtown Pensacola, Florida. One of the city’s older communities, Duval is a triangular-shaped section that extends along the east side of North W Street between West Jackson Street and West Wright Street. The community contains a mixture of single-family wood frame houses, CBS/stucco residences and manufactured homes.
Two public parks sit near the neighborhood’s southern edge; Allen Park and Bill Gregory Park provide Duval residents with various recreational choices. The two-acre Allen Park has a basketball court, a playground and benches shaded by large oak trees. Closer to the community, the nine-acre Bill Gregory Park has wide-open baseball and softball fields. Residents can enjoy boating and fishing at Pensacola Bay, located to the south within two miles of the community.
For a taste of arts and culture, downtown Pensacola offers the Saenger Theatre and Pensacola Opera Company. Historic downtown, located only two miles southeast of Duval, houses the Pensacola Museum of Art and Historic Pensacola’s Museum of Commerce. After touring the museums during the day, residents can take the locally famous haunted tours that not only offer ghostly tales of historic downtown, but provide educational insight into the city’s architecture.
Extending along the north side of Duval, West Cervantes Street provides for many of the residents’ immediate needs. This major thoroughfare is lined with an array of grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies. Larger shopping venues, including Wal-Mart and Kmart, are just a few miles northwest of the community.
