About Caleb Park

Caleb Park is located within the small community of Caleb in southwest Jacksonville, just east of the intersection of Blair Road and Normandy Boulevard. In the Bible, Caleb was one of only two men who survived after the forty years’ wanderings of the Israelites. Duval County purchased the property in 1960 from trustees of the Caleb Baptist Church, and the park, which contained a baseball field and possibly some playground equipment, opened soon thereafter. Another baseball/softball field was added later, along with a basketball court in 1983. In 2005, the City sold the south half of the park property to the adjacent church, and purchased a one-acre tract on the other side of Normandy Blvd. for use as a future park. Following public meetings to determine what new amenities the area’s residents desired in Caleb Park, the City completed a renovation of the facility in March 2006. Additional features:
