Signal Hill Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Sitting on the northeastern edge of Pensacola, the compact community of Signal Hill is a quiet alcove of single-family homes off of Guidy Lane. Signal Hill Lane is the neighborhood’s only roadway, making a lazy rectangle through the community. The western end has two roundabouts. Used instead of regular intersections, the roundabouts improve traffic flow and are considered safer.
Signal Hill was developed in the early 1980s. About 34 homes line the outer edge of the curved roadway and the inner rectangle. Homes range from two-story structures with sculptured rooflines to single-story ranch homes. The irregularly-shaped lots are large enough for swimming pools.
The University of West Florida lies just over a mile to the east via East 10 Mile Road. Other schools in the area include L. D. McArthur Elementary, Escambia Westgate, and a daycare facility called La Petite Academy. The Scenic Hills Country Club, a semi-private golf course, sits less than a mile east. In 1969, the USGA Women’s Open was played here. The club named its onsite restaurant, Caponi’s Grille, after Donna Caponi, who won the event.
South of the neighborhood are Drummond Park and the adjacent John R. Jones Jr. Athletic Complex. The Ensley Chiefs Football Association and the Youth Association of Northeastern Pensacola both sponsor sports programs for local youths. The 72-acre park is home to 12 baseball diamonds, a football pitch, colorful playgrounds, and picnic tables. An adult softball complex is also onsite, sporting four lighted fields complete with dugouts and 12-foot fences.
