Elysian Fields Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Generously-sized ranch homes on large, well-shaded home sites define the comfortable and welcoming Elysian Fields neighborhood, located within the coastal city of Pensacola, Florida. Neatly-trimmed sidewalks along gently curving streets make for safe and pleasant walks. Elysian Fields is bound by West Fairfield Drive, Demeter Place and Hestia Place in zip code 32506 of Escambia County.
While the neighborhood is suburban, it is also convenient to shopping and recreation. In fact, its proximity to major thoroughfares makes other parts of the city quite accessible.
The closest retailers are Wal-Mart and Bellview Shopping Center, both of which sit along the Mobile Highway. Bellview offers a Publix Supermarket and numerous fast food restaurants only five miles away. More comprehensive malls include Cordova Mall and University Mall, both approximately seven miles from Elysian Fields.
The festivals and fairs at Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds provide numerous scheduled events, such as art and antiques shows. While the fairgrounds are best known for the 10-day, annual state fair, concerts also draw crowds to this popular site, especially the well-known R and B Festival.
Golfers can tee off at their choice of two courses. The Marcus Point Golf Course lies only four miles away, while the Osceola Municipal Golf Course is even closer. This is one of the oldest courses in the city, and still a favorite.
Outdoor recreational facilities abound, but one of the closest is Tarkiln Bayou Preserve State Park. As a state preserve, the park limits recreational activities, but it is a great place to observe area wildlife. A boardwalk leads visitors to an unspoiled view of Tarkiln Bayou, and there are hiking trails and picnic facilities. Perdido Key State Park is only a bit farther and allows fishing and swimming. Many come to simply enjoy the famous white sand beaches.
Elysian Fields sits close to several institutions of higher learning, including Pensacola Junior College and the University of West Florida.
