The City of Jacksonville Recreation and Parks Department is working to create community by making Jacksonville the best place to live, work, and play. Our mission is to offer exceptional leisure opportunities that contribute to continuous improvements in individual health and wellness, a sense of community, environmental stewardship, and economic development. We value and believe in a high standard of excellence, joint and individual responsibility, involvement in decision making, trust, diversity, a sense of belonging, loyalty, mutual accountability, and respect in ourselves and each other.

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.  

Recently, construction began on the amphitheater at Richard Ray All-American park.  Once completed this area of the park will include a 400-seat amphitheater, stage area, and water feature.  The project is expected to be complete in the Summer of 2016.

Plans have been finalized for the construction of a splash pad at the Jack Amyette Recreation Complex.  This 2,000 square foot water amenity will offer residents an option for cooling off during the hot summer months.  This project is made possible by a Community Development Block Grant and is expected to be completed in 2016.
