Fairfield Lakes Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Fairfield Lakes is an upscale apartment community on the western edge of West Pensacola. Resembling a luxury resort, the property offers a free-form swimming pool compete with waterfall, a 24-hour fitness center, and lighted tennis courts. Residents can opt to play a bit of pool at the on-site pub or take a walk past man-made lakes that sport fountains in their centers. The red-tile roofs and ivory facades give this gated community a Mediterranean feel. Garages and carports are available for an additional monthly fee, and pets are welcome.
Entrance to this community is off West Jackson Street. Fronting the complex is a small shopping mall with a few restaurants and retailers. Nearby schools include Myrtle Grove Elementary, Jim Baily Middle, and Escambia High. The Pensacola Naval Complex is roughly a five-mile drive to the south. To the west, the area is lightly developed all the way to Perdido Bay, which forms the dividing line between Florida and Alabama and offers opportunities for water sports. West Jackson Street connects to Lillian Highway, which crosses the bay and the state line less than 10 miles away.
Following either West Jackson Street or State Route 98 east leads to downtown Pensacola. The latter roadway passes by Lexington Terrace, a regional park that offers covered picnic areas, walking paths, and an off-leash dog park. Other urban parks along the way include Bill Gregory and Legion Field. The closest shopping centers are Mariner Mall to the north and Southgate Center and Correy Field Shopping Mart to the south. Golfers can test their game at the Osceola Municipal Golf Course, accessible about two miles to the north.
