A Variety of Activities
May 2020
There's a bit of everything here. Trails winding through Florida's greenery, two playgrounds, a pier, and boat ramp. The views are stunning! Mandarin Park is a great place to spend a couple of hours and it is in a convenient location.

Nice park for the day!

Right in the heart of Mandarin with a nice boat launch and dock. Plenty of parking. Has pickleball and shuffleboard courts, a nice playground, a few trails for walking, a visitor center with local information and 3 pavilions, 2 with grills. One has electricity. They also have a small lake you can fish from. Nobody was catching anything.
The only thing we didn’t care for was all the cats. Someone left a bunch of cat food out right on the sidewalk and raccoons were getting to it. A lot of cats!
Plenty of places to picnic or ride your bike.
A nice boardwalk goes out to the river and you can spot some cool wildlife.
Restrooms were decent and clean. 2 water fountains available.

So you're in Florida, in Jacksonville, trying to figure out how to get on the water. Avoid the expensive drops and do as the locals do. We enjoyed this little park, its easy access boat ramp, it's short ride out to the fattest part of the St Johns river and it's close proximity to downtown Jacksonville. What a great park that's a well kept secret by the locals.

Just a short ride to Mandarin and you can experience picnicking at it's best. The woods and wildlife around makes it special. We took our dog with us on a picnic and she loved it too.

Lovely Park Ruined by Folk Feeding Cats
May 2018 • Friends
Do not hope to see birds in this park as a few folk have decided to favor the lives of wild domestic cats, an exotic, invasive species, over the lives of native animals, including birds. A public pier is being replaced after destruction by Hurricane Irma. A playground and picnic areas, as well as, good public restrooms are available. Racoons take advantage of the cat food, therefore it is unwise to bring any valued pets to this park (Rabies danger).

unkept little park
Mar 2018 • Friends
We were checking out a few parks in the area and stopped in Mandarin park for a look over. It looks like at one time it was a nice place. There is a boat ramp, playground and a well built info center. Sadly nothing has been kept up. The bathroom doors are falling off. The dirt trails are poorly marked. It looks like at one time there were interpretive signs but the only thing left are posts. There isn't a lot of open space if you want to have a family reunion and very few areas to sit. The lake loop trail is a real joke. The playground and boat ramp maybe the best feature there. There are much better places to go.

Nice Park
Dec 2016
This is a nice park. We use to take my grand daughter to this park to play. She loved it. It was kept up pretty well. The entrance has some pot holes , the grass is kept mowed and looks ok. There were always cars parked there with men in them, that was the only down side to the park.

Strange people at Mandarin Park
Jun 2017
Mandarin Park is a GREAT place to spend your day. The trails are awesome, views of the river are nice, it is well maintained. Unfortunately, there have been several reports of several males (or perhaps the same male) spotted touching himself inappropriately while children are present. The police have been called out multiple times. I am not sure if there has been an arrest. Enjoy the park, just watch yourself and your children.

If you can tolerate the humidity, which is typical of NE Florida, this is a nice place to go for an easy walk.
