Visit
the park

On any given day, you can find children playing in our Kids Zone, downtown employees enjoying lunch and live music in our cafe, enjoying a free event or program for the community.

Sometimes soothing and relaxing; at other times, programmed and active. But always, the place where we gather and celebrate our diverse community. Connect with the best Jacksonville has to offer in a safe, vibrant place right in the middle of downtown.
