Owner description: 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.

A small park of mostly grass that borders the St. John's river. Great views.

A casual park that all ages use. Parents with babies in strollers, fishermen on the river, photographers taking pictures of the fountain or river.

With it's proximity to the local shops, it makes for a great afternoon if not a Riverside resident and a great daily place to have a peaceful respite if you live in the area.

I have been here for concerts, and church gatherings. It is a really nice park with great views. There is a covered pavilion with a stage.

While the views are beautiful overlooking the St John's River the park could be a little cleaner. The fountain has never been on since I moved here a year ago. Needs some TLC

It's mostly just land, it's great if you want to take your small dog out if you're in an apartment and it's also great if you just want to have a picnic or draw/paint something. Lots of trees and grass right on the St Johns River.

Fantastic green space right on the river. Starbucks, Smoothie King just a few minutes walk away. We love to get some coffee and head over to the park. Lots of nice shady spots to hang out, plenty of benches surround the central grass area. Very quiet and peaceful even though it's not particularly secluded. One of Jacksonville's nicest parks.
