1. Florida C. Dwight Park 1199 West Church Street Located in a century old industrial district on the other side of I-95. Within walking distance of Engine 15’s new production brewery and bier garden but out of site, out of mind in regards to downtown visibility and access.
3. Harper Street 4.21-acre McCoys Creek site near the intersection of Myrtle Avenue and Harper Street in Brooklyn A large portion of this site has been identified in the past as being included as a part of JTA’s plans to bring Amtrak and passenger rail back downtown.

4. Main Street Pocket Park Intersection of Main and Duval Streets A skatepark at this site, solidifies the idea that a pocket park should have never been built next to the Salvation Army in the heart of downtown. However, if you’re a fan of clustering as much activity within a compact pedestrian-scaled setting, this is the most centralized site under consideration. It’s actually the only site located in the heart of the historic core of the city.
5. Metropolitan Park Is a riverfront skatepark a realistic option? In addition, there has been a lot of smoke recently about Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan targeting this property for future redevelopment.
6. Sports Complex Pond Site Under the Hart Bridge Overpass If you’re a fan of getting skateboarders as far away from downtown as possible, yet still referring to the area as downtown, this is your best location.
