Marty Robbins North Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Named for a country western singer that immortalized El Paso in a hit song in 1959, Marty Robbins North is south of the El Paso International Airport and due east of El Paso’s downtown core. The centerpiece is Marty Robbins Park along Vista Del Sol Drive on the southern end of the neighborhood, complete with baseball diamonds, shaded picnic tables, and play areas.
The residential zone, largely developed between the mid 1970s to the 1990s, is sandwiched between two semi-commercial zones. On the east is North Zaragoza Road and the El Paso County Sports Complex, home to six baseball diamonds, nature trails, and picnic areas. Just north on the same street is the El Paso Sportplex, another conglomeration of baseball, T-ball, and softball diamonds that are lighted for night play. Both of these facilities are within walking distance of Marty Robbins North.
North Zaragoza Road is also host to a number of restaurants. Those in the fast food category include Popeye’s Chicken, Subway and Dairy Queen. More locally influenced eateries include Acapulco Mexican Restaurant and the Toro Burger. Add to this a Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot, and Hobby Lobby on the corner of North Zaragoza Road and Montwood Drive. George Dieter Drive on the neighborhood’s western end is more residential but it does have a number of fast foot outlets and a Kmart on its northern tip.
Schools in the area include Vista del Sol Elementary on Vista Del Sol Drive and Keys Elementary on Jim Ferriell Drive in the center of Marty Robbins North. St Stephens Catholic Church, Faith Bible Fellowship, and Del Sol Church are all on George Dieter Drive.
