The neighborhood of Mandarin is situated in the city of Jacksonville, Florida.
Mandarin is reasonably quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamor - however some areas can be quite noisy, especially closer to State Highway 9A. The majority of locations within the neighborhood have fairly good access to green spaces, such as Alberts Park, since they aren't well-distributed. Despite that, there are a few parks nearby for residents to enjoy.
Around 40% of properties in Mandarin were constructed in the 1980s, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1990s.

Around 95% of the properties in the neighborhood are occupied by home owners while the rest are rented. This part of the city is particularly good for those looking for four or more bedroom homes.

This area is especially car friendly. It is very convenient to park. However, Mandarin is not a very pleasant part of Jacksonville for getting around by public transit. Nevertheless, there are a few bus lines. Mandarin is not very conducive to walking as many daily needs are impractical to carry out without the use of a car.
