Nice area to pass by and walk around. There is a theater and a Starbucks. Grab a coffee sit outside enjoy the weather and the family oriented neighborhood.

Neighborhood gem

Stopped here while visiting Jacksonville today to grab Starbucks and couldn't resist the charming appeal of this little shopping area! There are plenty of shops, restaurants and good people watching from the stores or outside on benches. We easily found a parking space directly in front of the shops and across from the lion fountain, which was a great photo op. I recommend visiting if you are in the area.

Kids love it

Just a nice little park with benches, they have a beautiful big gazebo and a fountain with the Lions of San Marco statue's. On the weekends sometimes they have younger people out there (like early 20's), with fire hoops and doing things like that that my grandchildren just love to watch!

This Should Really Be San Marco Square, Not Just Balis Park.
Jun 2017 • Couples
San Marco Square is really one of the must visit areas of Jacksonville. This Roaring 20's neighborhood was created to be one of the nicest communities in the country. Go around the Square, grab food, drinks, see San Marco Theater, and enjoy a pleasant afternoon. The Park is also great and should be enjoyed! Don't forget to see some of the amazing homes right on the river behind the Square.

Peaceful and Clean - A Wonderful Park
Apr 2017 • Family
What a pleasant park in this wonderful section of Jacksonville. It is also in a historic area of the city which is very trendy and nice. The statue of the lions is awesome as is the gazebo and water area.

This is worth a few minutes as you visit this great community.

Created in the middle of business area of San Marco, this is beautiful park to sit and unwind. If you enjoy people watching, this is the place to go.

Pretty park for the middle of the shopping area
Jul 2014 • Family
Balis Park is a small but beautiful park located in The Square at San Marco, in Jacksonville. The park was donated by the wife of the park's patron, Sheffield Balis, in 1988, and then improved with benches, fountains, and an array of interesting statues and sculptures that are a pleasure to view. While having no athletic or "exercise" resources, this park is still a nice little piece of green space in the middle of a busy town, and I recommend stopping by and admiring the plot.
