Park Facilities and Pool Reservations

As we move into Phase 3 of COVID-19, we will now accept reservations for parties of 100 or less. Park users are strongly advised to keep gatherings to less than 100 people and to follow the social distancing guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (maintaining a distance of 6 feet from others). Please abide by the advised guidelines and for any questions contact Kimberly Thomas, Executive Assistant to the City Manager at or 904-297-7500 ext. 3320. 

To make a Reservation, download and complete the Park Reservation Application and Park Indemnification Agreement from the links below.  It is highly recommended that all forms be completed prior to submission if they are being hand-delivered.  The forms may be submitted in one of the following manners:

1.  Hand-delivered to City Hall, 2nd Floor.
2.  After hours, hand-delivered, to the attention of the City Clerk, to City Hall in the night drop-box located at the drive-thru.
