Clean & Green

Our parks crews are cleaning up, fixing, and improving our recreational areas. Through the Clean and Green Jacksonville initiative, parks crews are able to enhance our landscape and horticultural improvements. They are also mowing and trimming more often in our parks and along our roadways.  

Improvements
Recently, the North East Creek boat ramp was rebuilt to include launch for two boats, with improvements to ensure safety. An artificial reef like structure has also been placed along Wilson Bay Park using recycled pieces of the Old Buddy Phillips Bridge and oysters, creating a new home for marine life. Phillips Park has a new waters edge that will allow for visitors to safely walk or fish along the bank.
