Navy Point is an historic residential neighborhood in the Warrington area of Pensacola, along Bayou Grande. Subdivided in 1918, adjacent to NAS Pensacola, part of the Vichy Springs project, some of the houses were built as early at 1927. Later, many of the homes were federally subsidized to house the families of American and allied pilots who trained at NAS Pensacola during World War II and the Korean War.

The Blue Angels often pass over Navy Point during their rehearsal flights.
