Gonzales Park Feedback Needed. Earlier this year, Jacksonville Beach Parks & Recreation conducted a Parks Survey to get citizen input on all of our Jacksonville Beach parks. Through the survey, the City received a lot of great input. Now, Parks & Rec would like to get more feedback, specifically about Gonzales Park in our neighborhood. If you live in north Jacksonville Beach, your feedback is important! Please read the below information from Jacksonville Beach Parks & Rec and email them at jphitides@jaxbchfl.net with your input!

From Jax Beach Parks & Recreation:
While we are working towards solutions for the vagrancy issues within our parks, we are seeking further input to enhance the amenities, appeal and usage of Gonzales Park.

Suggestions for Gonzales Park improvements from the survey included:
* Pickleball
* Walking/jogging track around the park perimeter.
* Converting softball fields to multi-purpose use.
* Installing fitness equipment.
* Upgrading playground equipment.
* Adding shade shelters.
* Provide functioning restrooms.
* Add flower trees.
* Community garden.
* Water features.
* Volleyball courts.

Although we may not accommodate all these suggestions, we would like to determine the most popular. Please email jphitides@jaxbchfl.net with your feedback on the following:

1. Please choose the amenities most important to you.
2. Are there any other amenities not listed that would encourage you to frequent Gonzales Park?
3. Would you be interested in attending a community meeting to share ideas for improvements to Gonzales Park?

THANK YOU for your feedback to help make Gonzales Park a great park for all of us to enjoy!

Comment on Facebook Gonzales Park ...

Volleyball courts are a great idea. The ones at south beach park and jarboe park are frequently full on nice weekends.

The vagrancy is out of control at that park.

Pickleball, fitness equipment, and a perimeter track all seem like great things. I’ve always liked the idea of a legit bar/ring park somewhere at the beach. That park needs artificial field turf for the fields like sunshine park in south jax beach. Running on the current fields is an injury risk with their condition.

District 3 residents: please read this water alert!A contractor was flushing a 12” water main today on 18th Ave North which has resulted in several water pressure issues and has stirred sediment into the water mains on the north side of Jacksonville Beach. Public works is advising to flush your lines using your tub until the water is clear to prevent rusty water. Boiling the water is NOT required!

We apologize for any inconvenience.
