Sandy Creek Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Sandy Creek is a community of single-family homes nestled in north Pensacola. The community is made up of houses along two roads with no outlets. Since the community is behind another community and ends in two cul-de-sacs, it is quiet with only local traffic. Wyatt Road is the main artery through the neighborhood, and residents can safely walk or exercise without much interference from traffic. Sandy Creek is in the 32514 ZIP code, an area less heavily populated as the rest of Pensacola. Large oak trees and wild areas mark boundaries between the two Wyatt Streets within Sandy Creek. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have pools and fenced yards.
The neighborhood is close to the University of West Florida (UWF), which offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Fans of collegiate sports can purchase tickets to many athletic events including baseball and basketball games. Pelican Baseball Park is along the UWF campus and hosts a minor league baseball team, the Pensacola Pelicans.
Golfers have many options in Pensacola although the Scenic Country Club is one of the most prestigious and exclusive clubs in the area. Only a short drive from the neighborhood, the club offers a beautiful, well-maintained golf course along with social memberships.
Water activities and beaches are approximately thirty minutes away from the Sandy Creek community. Scenic Drive winds its way along Escambia Bay and is ten minutes from the neighborhood. Marinas and parks dot Scenic Highway. Bay Bluff Preserve has boardwalks, trails, and the closest beach access to the neighborhood.
