Plantation Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Plantation Park neighborhood is in the heart of some of the best shopping and entertainment in Pensacola. Located just south of Interstate 10 and north of the University Mall, it is mainly a business district surrounded by several hotels; a movie theater; and a family favorite, Chuck E. Cheese’s.
On the south side of Plantation Road, Plantation Park is located in the 32504 ZIP code in Escambia County. Nearby public schools include Ensley Elementary, Woodham Middle, and Washington High School. A few miles to the southeast and just north of the Pensacola Regional Airport is Pensacola Junior College. The University of West Florida is approximately three miles north.
Although Plantation Park is mainly a commercial district, several apartment buildings and condominiums are nearby. On Plantation Road north of Stonegate are condos that average $70,000. To the east of Plantation Road is Joy Street, which also has condos available for sale and rent.
Plantation Park is the ideal location for people who enjoy a variety of activities. Escambia Bay is a few miles to the east, and downtown Pensacola is about six miles south. Also within a five-mile radius of Plantation Park are Hitzman-Optimist Park and Lavallet Park. Both have playgrounds.
About five miles to the south is the popular Bayview Park, which has amenities such as a dog park, boat launch, bocce court, playground, and tennis courts. The Bayview Dog Park in Southeast Pensacola is considered one of the best places to take dogs for fun and exercise. This off-leash dog park offers accessibility to Bayou Texar, a popular activity for dogs that enjoy playing in the water.
Many shops and restaurants surround Plantation Park, but many area residents enjoy visiting downtown Pensacola. Residents can stroll the brick streets of the historical downtown area while enjoying fine dining, museums, and galleries, and special events.
