Ridgewood Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Ridgewood Park neighborhood is located on the far west side of the port city of Pensacola, Florida, approximately 12 minutes from the central downtown area, and even closer to downtown Myrtle Grove and West Pensacola. This community sits about two miles east of Perdido Bay and just north of State Highway 298/Lillian Highway, south of Sachem Road, and east of North 77th Avenue. Ridgewood Park is part of Escambia County’s 32506 zip code area.
This small community spans little more than one block, extending just past 75th Avenue on the west and 74th Avenue on the east. The community also includes the homes to the north of Brightwood Street and two homes to the south of Carpenter Street. In total, just 25 residential home sites make up this neighborhood; all are modest single-family homes of various architectural styles and sizes. Shade trees can be found throughout the neighborhood, and some lots are quite heavily wooded.
Proximity to the bay is one clear advantage of Ridgewood Park. Residents enjoy scenic views, salty breezes and easy access to outdoor activities such as boating and fishing. Many major highways are also easily accessible from here, helping connect neighborhood residents to the rest of the city and hosting some shopping, dining and entertainment options close to home. Residents enjoy easy access to necessities like grocery stores and pharmacies. However, for major shopping trips, they may travel several miles northeast to the larger University Mall or Cordova Mall.
This community is also convenient to several area schools serving children from kindergarten to 12th grade. Myrtle Grove Elementary and Escambia High are within walking distance or a short bike ride to the east, and many other public and private schools can be found within a short drive of home. Several parks also exist in the area, including Meadowbrook Park and Myrtle Grove Park.
