Overview

Memorial Park is located at 1620 Riverside Avenue, between Margaret Street and Memorial Park Drive in Riverside near the 5 Points area of Jacksonville, Florida. It is one of Jacksonville's best loved treasures. Located along the banks of the majestic St. Johns River (incidentally, at one of its widest points, as it starts to turn east from its southern source towards its mouth at the Atlantic Ocean), this six-acre park draws visitors from across the Northeast Florida community. On any given day, families and friends, athletes and yogis, sunbathers, fisherman, and readers enjoy a quiet respite with magnificent views from this landmark open space. The park is walking distance to local restaurants and pubs, the shops at 5 Points, and the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, and just a short drive to Downtown.

Large city park located near interesting number of resturants, bars and shops. Parking is somewhat limited but worth finding. Lots of people in evening and on weekends. Safe and full of young families and older people. Nice place to take a break.

This memorial park is tiny with a fantastic monument to the First World War overlooking the river. Well worth a stroll around if staying nearby

I am happy that the city does offer a park. It is a good place to get a view of the water or take your dog on a walk, or just take an evening stroll. Nothing exception, but it is not a bad park. Another...More

I am sure it would have been gorgeous if it wasn't raining. However, all you can do is walk around. The wall to protect you from falling into the water was down in places and it needed some work. Big open space to lay down...More

Not only the park is beautiful to see the St Johns River but its location is at Riverside with beautiful old architectural homes but near great restaurants and 5 Point shopping area.

Historic fencing damaged and almost gone with no expectations for repair. Grass has returned, but several feet under water will take time to recover. Such a shame about the beautiful fence posts.
