Metropolitan Park, located along the beautiful St. Johns River in Downtown Jacksonville, has been open since 1984. You can spend the day relaxing or taking in a show at the park’s outdoor concert. There really is something for everyone at Metropolitan Park.
2. Water Taxis
There is no better way to get around in Jacksonville than a water taxi. It’s definitely something great about living Downtown that you rarely see in any other city. Taking the daily route from the Northbank to Southbank riverwalks is made easy, cheap, and fun thanks to water taxis.
1. Off The Grid Galleries
Off The Grid Galleries gives artists the chance to showcase their creative skills and flex their artistic muscles by allowing them the opportunity to work in temporarily vacant space left empty by property owners. It’s an initiative that everyone who lives in Downtown Jacksonville can proudly get behind.
