Our purview includes the public parks along the riverfront, including the Northbank and Southbank Riverwalks. Initially, we will focus on Friendship Fountain and St. Johns River Park, and the Riverwalk. As new and renovated parks are constructed, additional areas will be added with the agreement of the Parks Department.
The Conservancy will serve as a community resource for input and communication regarding riverwalk and park planning and implementation.
Funding sources will include park operations/event revenue, corporate partnerships, private and public grants, individual philanthropy, City of Jacksonville support and developer agreements.
