About Alberts Field

Alberts Field is located in the Mandarin section of south Jacksonville at the intersection of Brady and Orange Picker Roads. Bruno and Ann Alberts, who moved from their native Kentucky to Mandarin in 1935, donated the majority of the property to Duval County for use as a park and playground, which opened around 1959. A later donation from Ann Alberts in 1981 and a City purchase of 2.5 acres in 1994 expanded the park. Bruno Alberts (1888-1970) was an accomplished stain glass artist, portrait painter, and orchid enthusiast, and his wife Ann (1896-1991) was also an artist, who enjoyed painting orchids and still life compositions. For many years Alberts Field has been home to the Mandarin Sports Association, which has been the City’s partner in the improvement and maintenance of the facility that was used by approximately 900 children in 2004 for organized baseball and softball games.
