Plan a Visit to Jack Russell Park

Nestled in the heart of serene Atlantic Beach, Jack Russell Park is a haven for family fun and one of our favorite parks in Jacksonville. Between the 12 acres of playgrounds, pavilions, skate ramps, courts, and fields, the multi-use park is host to several sports leagues and events throughout the year, guaranteeing fun for all ages and interests. With all the activity comes bathrooms and even a concession stand open on weekends when sports are in session. Another pro for this park is that there is plenty of shade under the pines; keep your eye out for the beaches favorite colorful tree creatures by Scotie Cousin. Visit the park behind City Hall and don’t be too concerned with parking, as there is a large lot.

Playgrounds in Atlantic Beach, FL

Playgrounds at Jack Russell Park

With two playgrounds adjacent to the baseball fields, this park has slides, swings, and more for every age. The proximity to the fields makes for a nice way to entertain families of multiples when it’s game time for the siblings. Though they are not next to each other, both playgrounds are located conveniently next to the bathrooms, water stations, and pavilion. Adding to the fun are old truck tires giving kids the chance to hop from one to the other, showing off their parkour prowess. The playgrounds are mulched so closed toed shoes are encouraged.

They moved to Jacksonville from the DC area in December 2018 and trading the beltway for the beaches was the best decision of their dog’s life. She spends weekdays working in marketing and weekends working as the activity planner in search of the best nap-inducing events. This typically consists of beach in the morning, soccer and splash pad in the second morning, pool after lunch, Target, and golf carting to get Mayday in the evenings. During the moments to herself she’s listening to podcasts, watching Bravo, laughing at Tik Toks, or adding to cart. She prefers her Roundbird iced and my TacoLu “dilla” style.
