About Garden City Elementary School Park

The Garden City Elementary School Park is located in northwest Jacksonville near the intersection of Lem Turner Road and Dunn Avenue. The Garden City neighborhood was platted in 1913, but the region known as Garden City comprises a much larger area than just that subdivision. The School Board acquired the eastern half of the park property in 1949, and the City purchased the western half in 1955 and immediately began clearing the land for park facilities. The school was built in 1951, and the City and the Board have a joint-use agreement for a portion of the park. The School also owns and maintains a ten-acre nature area south of the school/park property. In addition to athletic amenities, the park provides benches and picnic tables for the use of students, teachers, and other visitors. Additional features:
